GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Empowering Youth Through Education and Mentorship

Good Success Academies is a non-profit organization that aims to empower young people through education and mentorship. With a focus on providing quality education and impactful mentorship programs, our organization strives to help youth reach their full potential and achieve long-term success. Through our dedicated efforts, we believe in nurturing the next generation of leaders and creating a brighter future for our communities. Join us in our mission to empower youth and make a positive impact in the world. Over the last 10 years, Good Success Academies has impacted over 500 youth throughout the Newark area. The mission of Good Success Academies is to prepare youth for college, work and responsible adulthood. The organization achieves it mission through an academic year career and work readiness program called Life Academy coupled with a summer employment program entitled Project Life Summer Employment Program. I wanted nothing more than to ensure the future success of primarily urban, adolescent young people who seemed to be destined for the school-to-prison pipeline.
