Scholars for Success


Annoyed with watching their peers leave school to take underpaid jobs or join gangs and get arrested or die, Syed and Mohammed founded Scholars for Success to improve the situation for the future generation of students. At Scholars for Success, students receive mentorship, individualized tutoring, motivation, career planning and the proper college preparation required to compete in the high school and college process. After only one year, 20 out of 26 students in the program improved their grades with the average GPA increasing by 25 points. Mohammed and Syed hope to expand across the New York City high school system; they also would like to reach out to drop-outs and gangsters to get them back in school or GED programs and ultimately a 4-year university.
