Broome County HEARS (Higher Education Access, Retention and Success) is a grand funded program designed to assist community members in gaining access to education. It functions as a partnership program among Binghamton University, SUNY Broome, and Broome County Promise Zone. Our main objective is to bring BC residents into the educational pipeline by providing tutoring, mentoring and overall a support system that would help them achieve their educational goals. One method is helping adults who would like to finish High School by connecting them to local resources that would help them achieve their High School Equivalency Degree. By doing so, we believe that there is a bigger chance to improve life conditions, community engagement and social equity.
