To inspire students to ignite their potential through academic support, mentoring, and coaching.
The Young Haitian-American Professional Society created EAGLE Student Mentoring, Inc. as a community-based organization committed to the Haitian heritage youth and their leadership development.
Over the years, leadership watched that the organization’s youth development program succeed through the tireless efforts of the program team’s work with student, parent, and community engagement. Collaborations and partnerships were cornerstones to the EAGLE’s growth and impact.
On July 2014, the Board and a consultant’s deep-dive into EAGLE’s organization resulted in a revamp of its program services and target population. As a result, EAGLE Student Mentoring, Inc’s focus rests with the local Haitian heritage students and families, but program services are accessible to all language learners within the community.
