Our Teen Achievers program is a grant-based program that guides teens through high school, encouraging them to set and achieve educational, professional and personal goals, while developing their talents and leadership skills. Since 2005, 92 percent of graduating seniors in the Teen Achievers Program have advanced to college.
Each year, the group embarks on an out-of-state college trip, where they visit several universities over the course of three or four days. This year, Executive Director Maurice Fears and the Teen Achievers travelled to Indiana and Kentucky to visit Butler University, the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville, among other institutions.
