Project Ready is designed to develop the individual student’s knowledge and attitude toward, and capacity for, post-secondary success. Boasting STEM programs, College Readiness, Health & Wellness presentations and Service Learning programs, all in support of getting our kids ready, for college, work and life.
This program focuses on STEM, Leadership Development, Historical and Cultural Literacy, College Tours, College, National Case Competition, and Career Preparation while in partnership with the National Urban League and Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Because we are located in San Diego, and because of the demographics of the students in the program, we will also discuss parallels, influences, and connections of the Latino, Afro-Latino, African community, other under represented communities. The Project Ready Curriculum on Historical and Cultural Literacy seeks to address the lack of culturally relevant and historically accurate curricula on the Black urban experience in America, and to empower youth with positive images of themselves as a people who have impacted the social, economic, political, and cultural development of this nation, yesterday and today.
Our mission is to spark Project Ready youth with the curiosity to increase their knowledge of self and community while investigating African American history.
