Your child can’t do it alone.

We are asking a lot from your kids. To participate, to want a better future, to continually overcome economic and academic disadvantages, but as much as we’re asking them to meet us halfway, we’re asking you to be that necessary bridge that facilitates their CROP experience, because they can’t get there alone.

They’re going to need a ride.

Our biggest requirement from CROP parents is that they provide transportation. To find out more about this commitment, check out our services.
