Hoop of Learning
The Hoop of Learning Program was implemented in the summer of 1995 in response to concerns voiced by Native parents in an urban high school district in Phoenix, Arizona. These voices influenced the high school and a local community college which to form a partnership committee to provide an educational program for Native students, now referred to as the Hoop of Learning. The Hoop of Learning is a high school to college bridge program. It is designed to foster cultural resilience and career development among Native Students.
