Make It Happen
Make It Happen! (MIH) is a college readiness program designed for high school multilingual and ELL (English Language Learner) students.
Students who attend Portland’s three high schools work closely with Site Coordinators, volunteers, and community partners to build competitive academic profiles for college admission and learn how to navigate and access financial aid.
To provide academic and language acquisition support, for the MIH students, we recruit volunteer academic coaches. We rely on community partners and members who have an interest in tutoring high school students in academic subjects of all kinds, as well as writing, and college prep activities.
