Urban Humanitarian Projects (UHP), in partnership with New York City Department of Education will be launching the Urban GURUS Project to address the issue of high dropout rates in the city high schools. The program is founded on the belief that every child requires two factors to be successful academically: guidance and resources. By pairing high school students with graduate students and professionals, we hope to foster healthy and supportive relationships that encourage students to pursue higher education and research career options.
To instill within our mentees a sense of determination and self esteem while empowering them with the resources necessary for pursuing higher education.
