What began in 1963 as one of New York City's first mentoring and college preparatory programs for underserved high school students has matured into a dynamic national organization. Each year we provide a broad range of educational and career development opportunities to hundreds of high school students, college students and young professionals. The SEO Scholars Program is a year-round, out-of-school, academically rigorous program that prepares motivated urban public high school students to earn admission and succeed at competitive colleges and universities. The program assists more than 400 high school and college students each year, offering a comprehensive roadmap to competitive college admissions and career success. We provide academic preparation, guidance, mentoring, and enriching life experiences that prepare students to take leadership roles in all areas of their lives.
