Sunday, April 16th, 2017 to Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 is quickly approaching. This year’s tour will be the 25th year the agency has provided this opportunity for youth of central Ohio. We will take over 35 youth on a five day, life-changing tour. For most of the youth that are going, it will be their first time traveling out of state. Also, many of the youth who decide to attend one of the higher learning institutions will be the first in their families to attain a degree from a secondary educational institution. Meeting with admission counselors and seeing people who look like them on campus helps our youth understand that college is just as possible for them as it is for others. This year we will visit Tennessee State University, Fisk University, Vanderbilt University, Clark-Atlanta University, Spelman College, Morehouse College, Georgia Tech University, Alabama State University and Tuskegee University. The youth will visit local tourist attractions in each city that we visit.
