Pillars promotes the creation of a college-going culture in the home by sharing information with parents and family members on ways to encourage academic achievement and college preparation for their children.
Parents and family engage in a series of workshops that guide them through the steps to empower their students to access a higher education.
Each workshop is directly tailored to look at college access and success issues from the parent and caregiver perspective.
