LPP helps students prepare for life after graduation

Sept. 14, 2017 

Middle and high school students are encouraged to take advantage of the Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP,) an after-school and summer program implemented by SUNY Sullivan.

The program is designed to promote college readiness and career development among eligible students who need some additional assistance to help them meet their goals and has a great lineup of community partners, including the Hurleyville Makers’ Lab, Catholic Charities, and Sullivan Agencies Leading Together (SALT).

LPP is a New York State Education Department funded program. It serves students who need assistance in completing homework, preparing for tests, getting organized and thinking about and planning ahead for life after graduation. In an effort to keep students engaged in school and graduating, they will provide tutoring and mentoring, help with goal setting, informational presentations on college and career preparation, job shadowing, and college and career site visits.

Parents of LPP students will have the chance to attend workshops on such topics as college admissions, financial aid, preparing for college, and motivating youth toward academic achievement.

In order to join LPP, families will need to fill out an application. If you have questions about the application, contact your guidance counselor or LPP@sunysullivan.edu.
