Dear Friends of People's Prep,
As Founder and Co-Director of People's Prep, I want to thank those of you who were able to join our extraordinary event last Thursday night, as we celebrated our first class of students to graduate from college!
Every member of People's Prep's Wolfpack was thrilled and proud to reach this important milestone. As the only independent public charter high school in Newark, launched just eight years ago, the moment served as a culmination of many long days, a great deal of hard work, and a tremendous passion for serving Newark.
People's Prep is committed to giving young people the resources, experiences and support they need to achieve at high levels and live a life of freedom and choices. To do this, People's Prep has built a unique customized model of learning focused on providing Newark students with the opportunity to attend and complete college, no matter what the challenge.
With the college graduation of our inaugural class, we take on the new responsibility of guiding our college graduates to further education and into the workplace. It is uncharted territory for People's Prep, but one that we will certainly navigate with your continued support.
For those of you who were unable to attend Thursday's celebration, please take a moment to watch this incredible video sharing more about our school's mission and vision.
And if you are so moved, please join me in making a donation to support our Class of 2019 campaign, providing resources and support to our alumni and newly minted college graduates! Donations of all amounts are welcome here.
