Lead Up was previously Hope College Center, a program of Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH). BHGH is an international organization that helps underprivileged, highly motivated students get to and through college. Since November of 2015 we have been working with a group of fifteen students at North Star High School providing them with mentors, tutors, career development, ACT prep, and assistance with the college process. Lead Up features much of the same curriculum used in BHGH’s successful model but alters it to better fit Lincoln and offer tangible pathways for our community to support its youth and prosper together. With the 40 years of knowledge BHGH has we designed a program that addresses critical needs, ultimately providing more students with the tools to get to and through college and launch into a successful career.
