Project Future Institute, a 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to closing the achievement gap and fostering excellence in education.
Project Future Institute Overview
Project Future Institute was created to transform students, especially at-risk students*, into communities of empowered and successful learners and citizens using science and mathematics.
Project Future Institute sponsors the SELF Empowerment Program™ (SELF™) which is a STEM program that uses science and math to inspire, educate, and transform students while building supportive relationships and a sense of community among them.
SELF stands for Surpassing Expectations for a Limitless Future.
Since the first pilot program in June 2014, SELF™ has grown from reaching 3 students to reaching over 90 at-risk students* over the past two years. The outcomes of SELF™ have proven we can positively impact student attitudes, math skills, and academic performance.
“At-risk students” are defined as students who are below grade level in mathematics.
