Having recognized a need that exists in our community, we are successfully serving at-risk high school seniors attending schools in Florida with low high school graduation and college transition rates via an innovative college readiness and career exploration course. Offered in collaboration with Florida high schools, Suits for Seniors’ program is intended to cultivate the academic, social, and leadership abilities of at-risk young people in Florida, while enhancing their traditional education and social development.
Suits for Seniors guides people to discover value in themselves by suiting them for success and empowering them with life skills that helps them take charge of their future.
Senior Success Program
The purpose is to teach high school students the importance of their educational career, personal finance, and professionalism so they can maximize the amount of opportunities they take after high school. It will also help students to properly work towards their goals and vision for the future.

My name is Miriam Pineda. I am a graduate from Palm Beach Lakes High School. The best part of Suits for Seniors was learning about being ready to succeed in college. Learning about the expenses of college and the best way to find funding for it. They constantly pushed for us to work on scholarships and complete our FASFA. When I graduate I plan to attend FAU and study Pharmacy.
