Four years will come and go before you know it. Our GEMs will have reached a milestone in their lives when graduating from high school. They will be ready to face new challenges as they prepare to go off to college. We will further support our GEMs by offering "A-Z" workshops on how to navigate the college admission process.
Through our research, we have found that there are thousands of colleges and universities in America, yet most people seem to only know the names of a few. We look to build relationships with colleges and offer comprehensive workshops that will encourage our GEMs to discover and investigate which college is best for him/her. To facilitate our plan, we will offer college and university tours, informational college seminars for our GEMs, and financial aid information to his/her parents on how to pave an affordable road to college. GEMs' ultimate goal is to increase the number of students of color graduating from four year colleges and universities.
