2017 College Tour – a success!
The 2017 HBCU college tour was held Sunday, April 16th, 2017 to Saturday, April 22nd, 2017. This was the 25th year the agency provided this opportunity for youth of central Ohio. About 35 youth went on the five day, life-changing tour. For most of the youth , 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.
This program helps our youth realize their potential by allowing them to meet with admission counselors and see people who look like them on campus. It helps our youth understand that college is just as possible for them as it is for others. This year, the visits included: 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 also visited local tourist attractions in each city.
