For the past year, I've been developing Project OneTen, an organization aimed at preparing young men of color to effectively transition from middle to high school. As a former high school teacher, I recognize the importance of freshmen year in a student's academic trajectory and want to ensure that ALL students are prepared for the academic and social rigor of high school. I am super excited to announce that we are finally embarking on our pilot season this upcoming 2019/20 school year. Our team has solidified partnerships with 3 High Schools: Butler College Prep, EPIC Academy, and Farragut High School.
Please consider investing in the lives of young men of color on the South and West sides of our city through the work of Project OneTen. Your donation today will assist us in funding our pilot programming, providing resources for our 16 young men, and also the filing costs associated with establishing our organization as an official non-profit in the State of Illinois. #LetsBuild
