About Us

Project PRIZE is a Liberty Partnerships Program (LPP) funded by the New York State Education Department. 2014 marks an important 25th year in the program's history and development. Through a wide variety of activities sponsored collaboratively by Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York and schools in Queens, students in Project PRIZE receive at least six hours a week of additional guidance and instruction to help make their middle and high school years as productive as possible.

The program serves approximately 240 students per year in grades 6-12. Principals, guidance counselors, and parents refer young people to LPP who are at risk of dropping out of school due to poor academic performance, low attendance in school, family circumstances, negative peer pressure, and other factors.

Because it is the goal of Project PRIZE to help students realize their dreams, its name was taken from the documentary Eyes on the Prize, which describes the goals of the civil rights movement and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
