In order for students to get to and through college, they must first have quality support and resources during their K-12 education experience. Applying, being accepted, and attending an HBCU (or any other college) is a journey. While that journey looks different for everyone, the need for quality support and resources in the K-12+ space remains the same.
Organizations such as Teach for America and Diversity in Leadership Institute work to ensure that there are caring and qualified teachers and school leaders across K-12 schools in our local communities. Schools like DaVinci Rise High School in Los Angeles and We the People High School in Long Beach, CA, provide students with the education and skills that they need to be successful in life and to become leaders within our community.
When students arrive at school, organizations such as Minty Educational Services help teachers deliver culturally relevant and engaging content while Love Beyond Limits supports the whole child and parents/caregivers as they navigate the challenges of transitioning to adulthood.
As the movie College Reunion will showcase, art and creativity is a huge part of educating a child. Benkadi Drumming and Dance supports arts education by providing traveling drumming and dance classes that service dozens of schools as an elective of choice. College Bound 4 Kids provides quality and engaging programs that offer full tutorial support and assistance which permits student to achieve academic success at school. Additionally organizations such as Coding with Culture, based in Atlanta Georgia provide students access to project based STEAM experiences through the lens of HBCUs. Similarly, Film Arts Culture and Tourism Specialist (FACTS) based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania is committed to creating sustainable space for arts programming that serve chronically under-resourced communities.
There are many wonderful and necessary non-profits doing the work and providing services that nourish and support students of all ages and at all stages of their academic career. In addition to your support of the film, College Reunion, please support and highlight the work of these organizations and help us increase student enrollment at HBCUs so that our children become adults who will one day have their own college reunions.
Minty is the nickname that Harriet Tubman's parents called her. Harriet is the inspiration behind our firm. Like she led slaves to freedom, we hope to lead school leaders and teachers to free thinking and innovation that will disrupt our current educational school systems.
