TeenSHARP, the intensive college preparation program for underserved students that launched its Delaware program in 2015, has received $10,000 from the Navient Foundation, according to the Delaware Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber posted the success story of incoming Wesleyan College freshman Alejandra, a straight-A student who learned in her junior year of high school that her school didn’t offer courses advanced enough for her to be considered by an elite college. With the help of her TeenSHARP action plan, which included classes at WilmU, DTCC and UD to supplement her high school course load, she was able to achieve her goal of college acceptance with a full scholarship.

The TeenSHARP College Access Ambassador Training Program is held Saturdays during the school year, with college-level seminars, one-on-one academic advising and mentoring, academic tutoring in various disciplines, meetings with inspiring professionals, leadership coaching, college campus tours and parent coaching. Underserved students in grades 9 through 12 are eligible.

The TeenSHARP Delaware Program for 2017-2018 is full; for information on applying for the 2018-2019 school year, visit teensharp.org. Also check out our recent coverage of the group’s Delaware Goes to College Academy for rising high school juniors and seniors.
