VOPIN's 'Navigating Education' project encourages our students to take ownership of their academic success and future. However, our students not only struggle academically, but their families are also struggling to navigate multiple socioeconomic challenges, which is reflected by our students' lack of achievement...
The Seattle area-based nonprofit is helping 80-plus students — the majority are Pacific Islander high school students — to overcome academic obstacles, and it has big plans to match the magnitude of the moment for the PI community.
