Project Promise

Many students face overwhelming difficulties while attending college. The primary purpose of Project Promise is to help students achieve their academic and personal goals.

Project Promise attempts to remove the difficulties associated with attending college. We offer individualized attention, career and personal counseling services, specialized tutoring assistance, visits to four-year colleges and universities, cultural activities, workshops, advising, academic and life survival skills. We have many other services that help students stay in college, finish a degree, or transfer to a four-year institution.
