Description

For 15 years, Higher Heights Youth Empowerment Programs, Inc. has provided college access programs to over 2,500 throughout the State of Connecticut.

Our Annual Young Legends Ball will showcase our accomplishments and is a special platform where we will celebrate 18 high school youth who have blazed a pathway of leadership that will take them to higher heights in the future - honoring them as our 2019 Young Legends.

Founded in 2004, HHYEP is a state-wide college access organization that promotes equal access and opportunities for under-represented college bound student to obtain a post-secondary education in Connecticut. Our goal is to increase college readiness, participation and completion in Connecticut among low-income students, first-generation college-going students and students of color.

Higher Heights has personally employed over 95 youth, serviced over 2,500 high school students, 100% have graduated from high school, 95% have enrolled into college receiving over $10 million in scholarships and grants.

The Young Legends Event honors Connecticut high school seniors who have: 1) made a commitment to obtain a post-secondary degree directly after high school, 2) have created a pathway for themselves where they are leaders and the community can see that they will be an influential leader in the future, and 3) who have overcome various trials and tribulations but understands that achieving “higher heights” is the only way they will be successful.
