Project Success

Project Success started in 1987 and is dedicated to encouraging students to reach academic success, and helping them develop into educated, contributing members of our community. Project Success programs provide nurturing, personalized, and concrete support in the form of mentoring and social, emotional, and communication skill development, particularly during students’ transition from pre-adolescence to the adolescent phase of their development. Project Success is a nationally recognized post-secondary preparation, tuition assistance, and mentoring program for Atlanta Public Schools (APS) students whereby the 100 Black Men of Atlanta provides tuition-assistance scholarships for all Project Success students who graduate from high school.
