Program Description

TeenSHARP was founded in 2009 to increase underrepresented students' access to college and develop student-leaders who are Successful, High-Achieving, and Reaching Potential (SHARP). Since then, TeenSHARP has evolved into an organization that gives low-income, black, and Latino youth access to premier leadership opportunities, trains them to be ambassadors of higher education in their communities, and prepares them for success at selective colleges and universities.

TeenSHARP currently operates two sites. One site is based at Rutgers University's Camden-Campus where it serves Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey students beginning in grade 7 with full-day programming each Saturday, school year-round. The other site serves Delaware high school students at the University of Delaware each Saturday.
