The Third Ward College Bound Project serves the immediate community as a resource to equip high school students with the tools they need to go to and through college. Only 40% of young adults in Houston, ages 18 to 24, are enrolled in or have completed college, and 27% of those in the same age range are in poverty. Understanding the necessity of education and its impact on job accessibility, Project Row Houses has partnered with local organizations and schools to enable tomorrow’s professionals to realize their dreams.
