Professional Opportunities Program for Students

The mission of the Professional Opportunities Program for Students (POPS) is to provide personal and professional development for teenagers who face social, economic or environmental barriers that may impact the quality of their lives.

The Goal of the Program

The goal of the POPS Program is to prepare the student for future success. The Village's first group of ten students was chosen equally from Palm Beach Central and Wellington High schools. Students and parents pledge to follow the objectives of the program to ensure success. Students of the program are afforded opportunities to travel to various college campuses and gain insight about areas of study and college life.

POPS' work is rooted in collaboration among:

  • Community and business leaders
  • Parents
  • Schools
  • Students
