EdGE is designed to help students make informed choices about their futures and develop the resources and skills to be successful—and happy—in life. More than 700 students take part in EdGE activities each year. To remove any barriers to participation, transportation is provided at no cost to the student. Summer camps have a nominal fee, but all other programs are free, and no one is excluded for lack of funds.
