Push

Abstract

PUSH our future, our vision, our care. Young adults who face an opportunity gap but have a mentor are 55% more likely to be enrolled in college than those who did not have a mentor. Prairie View A&M University Enactus Chapter has recognized that Hempstead high school students are at risk of not having full access of useful resources and mentors. Hempstead high school has 386 students in 9-12th grade with a teacher ratio of 10 to 1. According to state test scores 47% of students are least proficient in math and 52% of reading. Enactus welcomes PUSH to give the students guidance on their future; by welcoming a mentor program that will teach them skills that will carry on through their journey of life.
