Join and help build the community

Stay tuned as we grow and develop our resources page!
EPLN Rising Scholars
The EPLN Rising Scholars program is a mentorship program open to all high school juniors and seniors regardless of academic achievement.
High schoolers are paired with a mentor, usually a college student who will guide them during their Junior and/or Senior years to promote academic, professional, and personal development. While college readiness elements are included there is more flexibility in the mentorship program for mentors and mentees to adapt the focus of meetings based on the mentees individual needs and interests. Members of the scholar’s program have exclusive access to a network of current and past EPLN scholars and upon completing all the requirements will receive a certificate at the end of the program.
With the intent of expanding into additional courses and programming available to students, schools, and the general public in the future, this project provides online courses for academic, professional, and personal development for which participants who complete all the steps may receive a virtual certificate of completion.
The first programming EPLN will be releasing is for college readiness.
