The mission of IHADLA is to help at risk-youth and their families become empowered members of society by providing a long-term program that includes: academic support, college and career readiness, life skill development, parent engagement, and social-emotional support, plus the offer of a scholarship for higher education to assure the best outcomes for employment and life success. Our vision is that the cycle of intergenerational poverty will be broken in our life-time, as increased access to education leads to high-school graduation, college completion, and higher rates of employment. We seek to achieve our mission and make our vision a reality by sponsoring entire grades in low-income academically at-risk elementary schools, working with students, who we call "Dreamers", for 10+ years, through high school and into college. We then offer each high school graduate an $8,000 scholarship to be used for post-secondary education.
