A Winning Solution 

For sponsors 

  • Enhanced diversity as entry-level positions are filled with capable young men and women from inner-city families

  • Instills a sense of pride in companies, knowing that they are making a difference in the lives of students with limited economic resources

  • Cost-effective since the cost of a team is less than one full-time employee

  • Stabilizes high-turnover positions and reduces burnout in full-time staff. The most-talented workers in the next wave of the labor force can be identified, trained and eventually hired.

For students

  • Acquire skills and dispositions necessary for success in the workplace

  • Defray a large portion of their tuition.

For the school

  •  Serve a community where resources are most scarce and most needed

  • Able to provide a rigorous college preparatory curriculum to students in a faith-filled, values-oriented environment

  • Link real-world work experience with academic learning. 

For society

  • Greater potential for keeping a highly-educated, productive workforce in the Greater Baton Rouge community after college
