Zaniya's project "The Climb Is Our Story" is a program that will be facilitated by YesSheCanCampaign (YSCC) and The Multicultural Student Services Center at The George Washington University in partnership with School Without Walls. YesSheCanCampaign is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that uses live events and technology to provide educational resources to girls, young women and youth nationwide.  The goal of this program is to ensure that local high school students are well-prepared for college and their careers.The program will provide college and career readiness skills to School Without Walls high school students who participate in the MSSC student internship program. GW students will facilitate college and career readiness workshops with the assistance of the MSSC twice a week during the 2019-2020 academic year.  The program will include a service component where students will volunteer at least once a month at a local non-profit organization. At the end of the program, students will have the opportunity to participate in a Career Quest visiting local businesses in D.C. In addition, students will leave with a portfolio that consist of college and career tools.
