The GUIDE Program (Giving Underserved Individuals Direction in Education), launched in 2016, works with driven high-school students to inform them about educational opportunities and motivate them to pursue a college degree. We give them the tools and support they need to excel through high school and onto college campuses.
GUIDE students are paired with well-trained mentors, and are provided with a College Success Coach, SAT and ACT test preparation courses, college-readiness seminars, and countless other resources and benefits. We have established a strong presence within the high school, and pride ourselves on adapting our program to best meet their changing needs.
Successful completion of our two-year program earns each scholar a full, four-year Florida Prepaid College Scholarship. GUIDE has enhanced the lives of over 60 students at Miami Central High School, with plans for expansion.
