Program Description

The Office Group, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2014, offers hard-working and deserving high school students in challenging situations the services necessary to maximize their higher education possibilities at little or no cost.

For high school students, support services include college counseling, academic monitoring, tutoring and social mentorship. We provide a welcoming physical space complete with desks, computers and internet for our members to work. As our members move on to college, we assign each student a mentor to make sure they have the academic, social and financial support they need to be successful.

At The Office Group, we feel every student should have the opportunity to attend a college or trade school, or have a defined career path that will allow them be successful in life. We work with high school students of all ages and abilities to help them maximize their post-high school potential. Students can be recommended to us by parents, teachers, counselors, advocates, coaches or anyone who knows a student who has the ability and desire to expand their educational options, but may lack the financial means or family support to do so.

Success Stories

"The Office Group has helped our family immensely. Their dedication and commitment to my son's academic and emotional development is of incredible value. Noah is already showing great improvement due in large part to Corben's mentorship. I can't say thank you enough. Higher education is now in the future for Noah. You have truly helped him develop academic strengths that were areas of weakness before he started working with you. Thank you!" - Daveâ??â??
