Summary of Opportunity: 

 Higher Heights Youth Empowerment Program is a college access program located in New Haven, CT and we serve local high school students in the area. We are looking for college students that would love to volunteer their time to our students.

HHYEP provides college preparation services to high school students, grades 9 thru 12, and their families, throughout the New Haven and Fairfield Counties. We also provide technical assistance and professional development to school districts and community organizations. We are centrally located in New Haven, Connecticut. The mission of Higher Heights Youth Empowerment Programs, Inc. is to change the lives of the under-represented college bound students to EMPOWER, ENCOURAGE, and EQUIP them to obtain a post-secondary education.

We provide a host of services that consist of invaluable youth programs, such as college planning, test preparation, career planning, tutorial services, and seminars. Our curriculum is designed to assist adolescents and to help elevate the way they see themselves and to motivate them into becoming influential community builders.

We are asking for students from your university to become a volunteer for the students in our College Access Program. Higher Heights Youth Empowerment Programs Inc., seeks University students to serve as tutors and provide mentorship to our under represented college bound 9-12 grade students. We welcome students in different majors to help our high school students in the program. This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity or internship for students with service requirements as well as a chance to reach out to Greater New Haven youth.
