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. We strive to offer the opportunities to make on-site inquires of college officials, while simultaneously matching institutions of higher learning with the student's educational goals and career aspirations. We believe it will motivate and inspire them to achieve their goals and aspirations.
We support the students as they explore their future beyond their neighborhoods and communities, with hopes that this tour will allow them to realize that their life goals are attainable. This tour without question is a life changing experience.
