Closing the opportunity gap, 60 minds at a time.
Each spring, we invite 60 promising students of color to embark on an 11-year, life-changing journey. It demands hard work and commitment. In exchange, it offers invaluable opportunity. The 11-year program model is divided in four distinct phases - Academic Enrichment, Academic Counseling and Support, Leadership Development and College Support.
