What is Project HOPE?
Project HOPE (Health Opportunities and Pipeline to Education) is a support program that focuses on increasing the number of underrepresented groups who complete healthcare-related or science-related certificates and/or degrees. Project HOPE takes a holistic approach to supporting student success by providing academic support, leadership skill-building activities, community service opportunities, career counseling, and financial aid/scholarships. Project HOPE strives to make the transition from high school to community college and from community college to the university as smooth as possible.
