WHY GET INVOLVED IN EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS?
The future of Hispanics in North Carolina will depend on the level of education of the Hispanic population, particularly our youth, the future workforce of the country.
By 2018, it is estimated that 59% of the jobs in NC will require post-secondary education and this job market will increase by 12.6%.
For this reason, the North Carolina Society of Hispanic Professionals (NCSHP), in partnership with Wake County Public School System, are proud to present the ¡Gradúate! Program for Hispanic students and their families.
WHAT IS THE ¡Gradúate! PROGRAM?
The ¡Gradúate! Program is an academic support program designed for Hispanic students, grades 9-12, to attain academic success, graduate from high school and become the professional leaders of tomorrow. Our team works with students at school to provide support, guidance and motivation during school hours. We also provide weekly tutoring and life skills lessons during after-school sessions.
The ultimate goal of the ¡Gradúate! Program is to help Hispanic students attain academic success, graduate from high school, and become the leaders of tomorrow.
The ¡Gradúate! Program is currently implemented in Wake county at Millbrook, Cary and Southeast Raleigh High Schools thanks to support from Wake County Public Schools.
