Our Mission and Vision
Our mission is to uplift and empower our high school students, college students, professionals, educators, and community leaders by affirming their experiences, engaging in team building workshops, building upon their own identity and knowledge of self, and enhancing their connection to a network of first generation and/or ALANA/BIPOC community.
Our overall goal is to increase our network to assist in access, retention, and graduation of our first-generation, low income, and/or ALANA/BIPOC students in their journey to higher learning.
Together we can examine, model, and transform this experience into a stronger brotherhood and sisterhood of excellence.
