The 2016 UNCF Empower Me Tour Chicago!
Endeleo teamed with the United Negro College Fund to host more than 1200 high school students (1069 seniors) at Chicago State University to engage representatives from over 30 Historically Black Colleges and Universities in keeping with UNCF’s commitment to providing financial and capacity building support to its 37 member HBCUs.
As part of this year’s fair, Endeleo engaged 45 eighth graders from Oglesby Elementary School as part of its partnership with the school to provide comprehensive support for the, all-important, transition to ninth grade and beyond. The enthusiastic students were involved in special breakout sessions and toured CSU to get a real feel for campus life right in their own backyard.
UNCF and Endeleo are committed to creating a new narrative in education as it relates to the lives of black and brown children. On this particular day, we helped change the trajectory of a few young people. This is success illustrated!
