Results


Our first priority is the positive development of our youth participants. To date, we have demonstrated remarkable results in this area:

Educational Advancement

Since 2002, 92% of TPP participants have gone on to college, compared to a national average of 68%. During that time, 99.3% of participants stayed in high school, compared to a national average of 71%. The average GPA increases by approximately 0.5, one-half letter grade.

Cross-Cultural Understanding and Competency

90% of TPP youth reach significant criteria of cross-cultural competency.

Leadership / Sense of Future

Confidence, self-efficacy and ability to plan improve in 88% of participants.

Conflict Resolution / Violence Prevention

92% of TPP youth said they resolve conflicts differently as a result of the conflict resolution, communications, and cross-cultural components of the program.

Other

Besides achieving these stated outcomes, our youth have identified some intangible – and incredibly important – benefits that they have gained from their participation in The Possibility Project. These benefits include:

  • deep and lasting friendships
  • a sense of belonging
  • improved parent and peer relationships
  • personal empowerment
  • a greater sense of purpose, and
  • the ability to see and plan their personal and academic futures
