Description

Tale of Two African American Males and Their Journey to Ivy League Schools: A Case Study

How do we get more African American males to show their GREATNESS and academic prowess? Can Black Males attend Ivy League schools? How do we prepare our Black Male Scholars for college and career readiness to maximize their education?

Comments

The Greatness Camp is sending African American males from our Greatness Camp Black Male Scholars (or GCBMS) pre-college summer programs at Ivy League Institutions. This one-two week on campus experience will provide equity and access to many of our underserved youth. We have been recognized and awarded $10,000 by BMe Community for our work. We plan to use the award to increase our partners and most importantly, increase the number of student participants. I believe that this course will enhance the opportunity to provide more outreach to schools/districts, students, parents and community stakeholders.
