Prosperity Prep is an afterschool program designed to serve middle school girls from under-resourced communities. Our program helps teenage girls navigate life in extremely poor neighborhoods and helps them escape these conditions through education. We focus on social entrepreneurship training, leadership skills and critical thinking to teach girls to create their own path to Prosperity. The goal is that with a quality education, each girl will be able to forge a career that will bring about advancement and growth in their communities as well as their personal lives.
Prosperity Prep was founded by women of color who come from the same impoverished backgrounds as the young women we serve. Similar to Prosperity Prep’s founders, many of our girls will be the first in their families to attend college. Having learned first hand the opportunities a quality education can provide students from under-resourced communities, we created Prosperity Prep so that today’s young girls will have educational opportunities that will expand their minds and facilitate their journey through entrepreneurialism.
