Message from Executive Director Dan McAuliffe on COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused uncertainty for me, my family and the world around us. As Shepherds Executive Director, I believe I have a better understanding of what Shepherds students experience each day.
Without guidance, they are unsure how to navigate the educational challenges they face. Our students are both economically and educationally disadvantaged. Most of our students come from homes where no one has attended college previously.They are unsure how to navigate a rigorous high school educational experience and the college application process, including financial aid.
While motivated and talented, our students need additional support and guidance beyond what they receive at home. Shepherds provides a private college preparatory education, educational and social skills training and, most importantly, a caring mentor to guide the way.
I hope you join me by supporting Shepherds as a mentor for our upcoming freshman class or by donating to support our successful program. To find out more about helping our mission, fill out this form and we will get back to you.
