Est. in 2013, The Midwest College Project is a local nonprofit established to support minority students with college & career planning on the weekends. We partner with industry professionals and thought leaders to design a robust program for coaching, professional skills, mentoring just to name a few. The name the "Midwest College Project" signifies our desire to cultivate home grown talent by fostering alliances with local Midwest Universities to support diversity and inclusion admissions recruitment strategies. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are a lot smaller organization than many competitive programs which allows more hands on attention and greater access to many resources.

"In a series of short stories told in loving yet plainspoken prose, Raising a Winner tackles the myths and misunderstandings about raising children.
