Project Greer Street is a transformational academic enrichment
program that utilizes a bold new approach and framework to promote
high achievement among African American high school males by
cultivating an academic ecosystem and eliminating roadblocks to
their success. We embrace scholastic excellence, extracurricular
involvement, character development, leadership, perseverance, and
personal growth. We teach the skills and tactics necessary for
success in the areas of academic achievement, college preparation,
life skills training, and employment.
As a pipeline initiative, Project Greer Street prepares students to

the students with the knowledge and resources to create a foundation
for achievement to access the on-ramp for life success.
