Delaware Futures prepares economically disadvantaged youth for college by providing academic, social, motivational support and cultural enrichment activities throughout their high school experience. Upon high school graduation, students who meet the academic requirements qualify for partial or full tuition scholarships to one of ten partnering colleges.


Our History

In the fall of 1993, members from two Episcopal congregations, Trinity Parish and St. Matthew's Church joined together to initiate a project that would serve the educational needs of city youth.


Using the very successful John Laws Institute of Worcester, Massachusetts as a model, the committee designed a comprehensive enrichment and support program to work intensively with a small number of high school students each year to prepare for college. A key benefit of the program is the guarantee of free college tuition for all program graduates.


By the spring of 1994, the organization committee had succeeded in attracting significant interest from funders, the business community and the educational community, including area colleges and universities. The original planning group was expanded to include representatives from the higher education and business communities and the community at large. With a start-up grant from the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, and office and program space donated by Trinity Parish, we began to recruit the first class of students and set up the various program components.


Delaware Futures is housed in a building attached to Trinity Church.
