Will's story, and many more like his, helped us realize that so many at-risk youth could attain a high school diploma with educational advocacy and support. Situations like his, partnered with our beliefs and the research that finds that quality of life and economic opportunity for at-risk youth is greatly enhanced with a high school education, inspired us to
create Project New Heights.
Our youth are considered "at-risk" for academic failure due to substance abuse, mental health, and/or socioeconomic challenges, and are often involved with the juvenile justice system.
Our youth are considered "underserved" in that they are not receiving comparable services from any other entities and are greatly in need of temporary or ongoing intervention in order to achieve academic success.
At PROJECT NEW HEIGHTS,
it is our mission
the quality of life for
support, and dropout prevention services.
