Historically Black College & University Fair
Eleven teens attended the Historically Black College & University Annual College Fair. It took place at Riverbank State Park in New York City on Saturday, November 14. The teens visited with the 30 Historically Black College & Universities to learn the requirements for acceptance. More than 1,000 perspective college students attended the event. The teens were excited to be there.
This is the first in a series of events the Club has planned to expose our teens to more colleges and universities and assist them with successfully attending college. Other things planned are as follows: Launching a tutoring program; and planning two college tours in the spring.
Academic success is at the top of our agenda for our members. Ms. Janice Dye and the Greater Hudson Valley Links were instrumental in our getting the teens to attend the Historically Black College & University College Fair. The links are great partners who support our youth in many ways including sponsoring our Healthy Snack Program.
