What is the Educational Guidance Program?

The Educational Guidance Program (EGP) is the educational arm of the nonprofit organization Hellenic Hearts dedicated to providing education-to-career guidance to Hellenic-American Youth.

Do you want to go to college but aren’t exactly sure how to get there or what you want to do when you get there? Are you a parent who could use some information about the college selection/application process or want to ensure that your child has every possible opportunity to become successful in their future? If you or your child are ready to step into college, but need some guidance through the process, EGP is here to help you!

What does EGP Do?

Inaugural Mentoring Event

During this all-day event to be held on April 22, 2017, students will have the opportunity to talk to various professionals, and learn more about potential educational options, career paths, and everyday habits to help them become successful. This year’s event will be held at Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Upper Darby. The event will give students the opportunity to have mentoring sessions with EGP sponsored advisers and will also include speakers who will talk to students and parents on a variety of topics including, but not limited to, financial aid, preparation for college, and the admissions process. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend.

FREE SAT Prep Program

EGP has secured a group (Princeton Review) to provide SAT prep tutoring for rising high school juniors and seniors. Students interested in joining this free SAT prep course must apply by April 29, 2017. With the average SAT prep courses costing ~$1,500 per student, the purpose of this group program is to provide access to students who need assistance preparing for the SAT but may not be able to afford to enroll in a prep course individually.
