Featured Story

Project Success: 30 Years and Counting!

Thirty years ago on January 3, 1994, Project Success was founded. Now in our 30th year, our deep belief in young people and our mission of connecting students to their purpose hasn’t changed. Together this year we will celebrate the stories of our students and families, honor our partners, and look to the future of continued impact for young people in realizing their dreams. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the Project Success story – 30 years of connecting students to their purpose!
