THE VCP FIREHAWKS FUND
— Empower Students to Take Flight —
High school graduation is not the finish line for students but just the starting line for lifelong professional and personal success. However, Indiana’s college matriculation rate is among the lowest third in the United States, and the college-going rate for students from historically marginalized communities, like those served by VCP, is even lower.
Supporters of the VCP Firehawks Fund sustain vital social-emotional enrichment experiences that supplement classroom learning to help students develop their emotional intelligence and personal engagement skills. This development empowers them to successfully persist through their university degree program and into a higher-wage career.
PROGRAMS SUPPORTED BY THE FIREHAWKS FUND
- IHSAA athletics teams;
- after-school academic clubs;
- university site visits;
- VCP 4-Star Scholarship awards;
- alumni counseling services provided through the sophomore year of college.

VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME – – – – – –
Victory College Prep relies on the generosity of more than 300 community volunteers each academic year to support programming inside and outside of the classroom. Our most significant volunteer need is for individuals and companies to serve as partners of our Firehawks Internship and Real-World Experience (FIRE) Program. Those interested in hosting VCP high school students at their workplace on select dates during the school year can signal their interest using our FIRE Program recommendation form.
To learn about the FIRE Program or other on-campus volunteer opportunities, contact VCP Chief Development Officer Andrew Hayenga at firstname.lastname@example.org.
