The Kwame Foundation recognizes the value and importance of obtaining a college degree. We want to help increase the number of African-American students who enroll in, and graduate from, a college or university. Annually, we take approximately 50 high school students to tour multiple Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs).
During this weeklong tour, we introduce students to campus life and provide them with a series of informational sessions. Our tours give opportunities to make on-site inquires of college officials, and allow student’s to begin making educational goals and career aspirations. We believe our college tours motivate and inspire kids to achieve their goals and aspirations.
We support the students as they explore their future beyond their neighborhoods and communities. This tour without question is a life changing experience.
