Serving students from lower income backgrounds from 7th grade through completion of college, we empower individuals to reach their potential by expanding educational choices, vision and dreams for the future. Students reach their dreams through a community-based combination of college and career readiness curriculum, deep mentoring relationships, leadership development, service-learning, and family engagement.
We believe that all youth in our community should have every opportunity to live out their best lives regardless of their zip code, family income status or obstacles they face. Potential, talent and ability should not be limited by a person’s circumstances. We also believe that overcoming obstacles isn’t a solo act–it requires support, guidance and encouragement from an entourage of caring mentors and educators.
We need volunteers interested in serving as mentors, assisting with tax and financial aid preparation for families, or presenters who can share their stories of overcoming challenges.
Peak Education Scholars who enroll in college earn an average of $10,000 in scholarships each year – that’s equivalent to $40,000 over 4 years of college!
“Peak Education is about encouragement and staying focused on the goal. As scholars, we pushed through obstacles, got out in the community to see what the world had to offer, and are now getting to do what we always dreamed about.” — Porschae Chitmon-Turner, Alumna and Board Member
