Project Tomorrow takes promising at-risk youth and trains them to become instruments of change in their communities by providing them with full scholarships to Christian preparatory schools.
The program is funded by The Salvation Army and the three schools that host the students are: Tyler Street Christian Academy in North Oak Cliff, Stone Gate Christian Academy in Irving, and Dallas Christian School in Dallas.
Students say the program helps them get out of troubled neighborhoods and into safe environments where they learn core Christian values and how to maintain their academic success.
90 students, who've graduated from the program, have been accepted at universities like: Rice University, SMU, Baylor, UNT, Texas Tech, Dallas Baptist University, and the U.S. Naval Academy.
The first scholars entered the program in 1990 thanks to the generosity of two Salvation Army Board Members, Christy Carter Urschel and the late Nancy Underwood.
