Last year, thanks to a small grant, our students were able to visit local colleges in the D.C. area- Howard University, University of Maryland, Georgetown University, and American University. This was a transformational experience for them. It inspired our students to think seriously about pursuing a college degree, and allowed them to talk with current college students about the importance of continuing education.
This year, we are fundraising to take our students on visits again and are including an overnight trip to Pennsylvania to visit schools including Temple, Lincoln, University of Pennsylvania and Penn State.
