Our mission is simple. To expand educational opportunity by providing individualized college counseling services to underserved college-bound students and their families in the Greater Houston Community.
Project College Counseling began as a burden in the heart of Jarvis Taylor, the founder. While working as an admissions counselor, he noticed that underserved college-bound students and their families lacked the guidance necessary to make wise college choices. After extensive research and conversations with representatives of underserved communities, he realized that theses families needed a community-based college counseling center that provided individualized college counseling services. To bring this much-needed service to underserved communities, Project College Counseling was incorporated in 2015. Gloria Fikes and Maceo Willis assisted in the development of a board of high caliber leaders with a heart for underserved communities.
At their initial board meeting, they agreed to start providing college counseling services to families in the Sunnyside community and raise awareness about the lack of quality college counseling service for families who need it the most.
Project College Counseling plans to establish community-based college counseling centers in underserved communities in the Greater Houston area, starting with Southeast Houston. At the heart of our mission is an unwavering commitment to treating the precious and hard working families of underserved communities with dignity.
