About Project Canvas
At the core of our mission is an unwavering commitment to treating historically marginalized college-bound students and their families with dignity. Project Canvas is much more than an organization that helps college-bound students go to college; we affirm their humanity by engaging them in a process that will help them create options, select the right college, and reach their full human potential.
It’s extremely important to us that you get to know more so that you feel comfortable partnering with us. Once you take the time to find out what we’re all about, we are confident you will want to help Project Canvas accomplish its mission. So go ahead, get to know us.
