Maryann Donlon Senior Citizens

Welcome to Project Education Plus

PEP’s founders conceived Project Education Plus in 1980. Seeing a need for a regimented, innovative program with stability, PEP began as eight-week youth summer enrichment and organized sports program. PEP quickly expanded to a year-round agency with additional programs for senior citizens in the community.

In the ‘90s, PEP redesigned its focus to include college preparation and mentoring. It added a computer lab complete with computers, Internet access, photography, and other tech hardware to hold organized technology classes for the community. PEP has morphed into an agency that provides expanded services with separate program activities for youth in Pre-school thru Grade 3; Grades 4-8; high school, college mentoring, young adults, and senior citizens seven days a week.

Within the last two years, PEP Academy was started for the youth who need to complete their high school requirements. PEP was recognized as one of the top programs in Chicago by the Chicago Sun-Times.
