The Project Tomorrow program provides full scholarships to Christian
preparatory schools for gifted and talented, at-risk, middle and high school
students, training them to become instruments of change in the very communities
where they grew up.
The students attend Tyler Street Christian Academy, a college
preparatory school in North Oak Cliff, as well as Stone Gate Christian Academy
in Irving and Dallas Christian School in Dallas.
Students say the schools provide a safe environment where they can learn
and embark on a successful career path and spiritually positive life.
95 students have been enrolled in The Salvation Army’s Project Tomorrow
program since its launch in 1990. Graduates have gone on to attend
universities like: Rice University, SMU, Baylor, UNT, Texas Tech, Dallas
Baptist University, and the U.S. Naval Academy.
The future of the program includes the building of a
successful network of past alumni who commit to becoming mentors to present
scholars and to those currently in college.
Project Tomorrow not only has a dramatic impact on the lives of past
graduates, but it is also charting a new course for future generations.
