Target H.O.P.E has one of the highest graduation rates in the nation.
Target H.O.P.E is a non-profit organization that is committed to eradicating the high school attrition crisis in Chicago Public Schools. Our paramount mission is to implement a holistic approach to educating children by elevating their self-esteem, values, and leadership attributes. Our salient objective has focused on implementing best practices to ensure students enroll and matriculate from college. Since 1994, we have sent about 5,000 students to colleges and universities across the nation.
Healing, opportunity, pride, and empowerment are concepts that are reinforced to inspire self-confidence in students that are often dismissed and written off. Our model provides empirical evidence that at-risk minority children will excel if the educational paradigm is reformed. They can then contribute to a more diverse, educated workforce that can fuel the nation’s economy and foster innovation and effectiveness.
Target H.O.P.E is elated by the continued support of family foundations and businesses.
