Funding Needs

Prospective Third and Fourth Year Hamilton Leaders Academy: It is our intent to add a third and fourth year program as soon as we are able. Year three will focus on financial literacy training, goal realization, resume preparation, workplace skills and navigating various organizational cultures. The fourth year will focus on college end issues such as resume prep, grad school selection, future studies and career exploration. The third and fourth years of the program have not yet been fully developed; however, Hamilton Friends will tailor these years to meet the needs of the students during their sophomore and junior years of college
