PROPEL is Impacting the Lives of our Youth Everyday.

My mentors have become my family and PROPEL become my second home. They have made high school better for me and just loved me. Every child needs the PROPEL experience, a family, and a home. It’s not just education, it's love.

My experience at PROPEL is something that has guided and kept me going when I left for school. The relationships I built there have become more than just friendships, but family. PROPEL helped shape the woman I am today.

My experience at PROPEL has always been a feeling of having a second family. There would be conflicts but at the end of the day we were always a family.
