Project Ready is the Louisville Urban League Youth Development & Education Department’s signature, out-of-school-time program that prepares students for a successful high school to college transition. Project Ready focuses on:

  • College and career exploration
  • STEM-awareness
  • Individual goal planning
  • Academic enrichment
  • Leadership development
  • Social skills
  • Service learning

The experiences provided in the areas above, prepare youth to graduate from high school “college-ready” and with the life skills and tools that support a successful college graduation and beyond.

The Project Ready curriculum is comprised of three major components that are guided by the Individual College Development Plan (ICDP) established for each student. The development of valuable inter-personal life skills, communication, and leadership skills empower our students to be resilient for a successful academia and life. Components are academic development, social development, and cultural and global awareness.

  • To ensure our students receive the necessary support and opportunities for them to succeed in STEM related class work and to expose them to STEM related careers
  • To bring out and enhance each student’s non-cognitive skills to build resiliency
