To change the statistics, Project Leadership matches volunteers from our community to mentor motivated high school students to provide support to guide students to and through college. Mentors commit to a year of service, meeting with students for an hour each week. Because we know that college degrees provide the opportunities that make individuals and communities successful.

Please join us today to mentor a student and improve our community. Together we can make a difference.
