Young Men of Color Initiative

Improve educational participation and increase college completion for young men of color in the United States and increase the national dialogue around the educational crisis facing this group.

About this Project

A significant percentage of minority male students are falling outside of the system. Whether measured by unemployment rates, poverty, imprisonment or recidivism, the challenges facing minorities are stark and undeniable. We need to break the cycle and give these young men the support they need to achieve their full potential.
