Our College Scholars attend 50+ Colleges and Universities across the nation!  Currently, we have 150 scholars in our College Cohort.  We support them by offering scholarships, regular check-in's via text, care packages, resume editing and Linkedin profile creation.  College Scholars have exposure to our Network for internships and other opportunities.

Our teen Scholars attend 30+ High Schools across the Chicagoland area.  We created 12 different practical lifeskill workshops that were offered on a quarterly basis.  In May, we held a 1-day conference at UIC for our teens.  Our support extends to shadow days, letters of recommendation, and connections to additional resources.

Our Parent Cohort is kept in the loof of opportunities we offer their child!  Parents work together, share information and resources via the GroupMe app.  Some parents have included industry professionals that have led some of our workshops, volunteer for our conferences and given monetary support to help us help all youth PLAN4SUCCESS.

PLAN4SUCCESS maximizes its reach and impact by using a "Community Network" structure, which allows for interaction with over 25 NonProfit organizations to prevent service duplication and expand the network of services offered to teens and college scholars.  If you are a NonProfit or know of one that services our youth, please join our Community Network!
