COLLEGE PREP INITIATIVE

The objective of the College Prep Initiative is to increase college access, achievement, and degree obtainment among black students. We use workshops, seminars, peer mentoring and tutoring as key tools to achieve success. Our students are exposed to business etiquette seminars, professional development workshops, personal development, and community service projects. Upon completion of the program, students will have successfully completed over 50 hours of community service. Below you will find the schedule for 2021-2022 academic school year.
