Project Leadership

Project Leadership is an organization that blossomed out of a generous investment from Lilly Endowment, Inc. in 2000, when Lilly funded a Community Alliances to Promote Education (CAPE) program in Grant County.

The Project Leadership mentoring program is a community partnership that works to weave the dreams, hopes and futures of our community’s most precious resource – young people. This school-based mentoring program matches outstanding community volunteers with local Twenty-first Century Scholars to encourage and guide them throughout their academic high school careers. Project Leadership awards mentorships to scholars during their freshmen year of high school. Mentors commit to a minimum of a one-year relationship with the student.
