Project HOPE (Hispanic Opportunity Program Enhancement) enhances Hispanic middle school/junior high students' educational experiences in a university setting.
The main objective is to provide Hispanic students with extra preparation for high school while introducing them to the university environment. The ultimate goal of Project Hope is to help students achieve in high school so they continue their education in college.
Project HOPE consists of three enrichment program sessions held on campus at GSU.
Each session serves 35 students from schools located in the Chicago Heights community. The fall and spring sessions are conducted on five consecutive Saturdays. The summer program runs three days a week for five weeks.
All programs include science, math, and creative writing taught by certified teachers in addition to physical activities and field trips.
The Academic Resource Center strives to promote the personal growth of students and to enrich their academic experience.
