The Academic and Leadership Accelerator for Service (ALAS or "Wings" in English) is an 8-month college/career readiness program that focuses on preparing low income or students of color for a life with purpose and stewardship in our community.
Our mission is to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be successful life-long learners and future community leaders.
ALAS ignites the spirit of service and understanding that each student’s actions in college, career, and life have an impact in our neighborhoods and community. By expanding access to higher education and opening avenues to professional development, students form the foundation of personal success and community empowerment.
Additionally, students will gain exposure to dynamic and diverse business leaders, nonprofit organizations, and community members that serve as subject matter experts and mentors in college readiness and professional development.
Students will also develop career and professional knowledge, such as resume writing and interviews, strategic planning, and financial planning.
