Drop In and See Us
“Being told I was chosen to be in a program that would help me get to college was the moment I saw my future get a little brighter.”
~ Collegian Leader
One of the greatest joys of taking part in the Lead Up community is following the progress of our students and being amazed at what they attempt and achieve.
Quite a lot goes into the “recipe” that makes that possible, and we invite you to learn more about our research-based program model here.
But the best way to experience the innovative and creative way Lead Up brings college and career into focus, is to drop in and see us. We know you’re busy, so we’ve created some visits below. Drop in (or should we say click in?) and come alongside our students as they reach for their future.
P.S. You’re welcome in person, too. Anytime.
