PROPEL is the first steppingstone for individuals seeking guidance when creating a path for a better tomorrow for their families. What makes PROPEL different from other programs is the amount of support participants receive from our dedicated success coaches and community partners. PROPEL provides services specifically designed to empower individuals within our community by removing barriers, increasing access to existing community resources and building a support network. PROPEL focuses on the components of Academic Advancement, Career Connections and Empowerment Experiences. The services provided are designed to empower our participants professionally and help them achieve a financially secure future.
