Project Ready BLACK GEMS
Are you a high school student interested in building skills for success in high school, college and beyond? If so, Project Ready BLACK GEMS is for you. This program helps prepare 9-12 grade students for the college experience. We integrate academic skill building with life-skill development and college culture awareness. Students also are paired with a mentor in their senior year who will help them through their freshman year of college.
Black Gems offers students:
- Basic academic support in math, reading, and writing
- Financial literacy and computer training in Microsoft Suite
- Social and emotional learning covering topics such as peer pressure, developing a support system and coping through transitions
- Help with the college application and admission process and scholarships searches
When: Two times per week from January to April. This includes a free in-state college tour and a fee-based Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) tour.
Where: Urban League Twin Cities, 2100 Plymouth Avenue North Minneapolis, MN 55411
