H.E.L.P.

Higher Educational Learning Program

The Higher Educational Learning Program (H.E.L.P.) is aimed at assisting young men and women in maintaining their focus on education after high school, while introducing the youth to the needed tools that will assist them in making positive choices early in life. These particular students are not only involved with the Running Rebels Community Organization, but are also encouraged to be involved with other positive activities within their community. This will provide students with a full understanding of how giving back to the community will open doors for them.

Our goals for the participants of the program are aimed toward assisting the youth to accurately obtain realistic desires of attending college or pursuing other secondary education endeavors.
