We are raising money for nine of our Junior High and High School students to take a one-week college tour for spring break. Our desire is to expose our youth to some of the most elite universities in the Unites States of America. We want them to know that they do not have to settle for mediocrity, but with God's help and hard work, they can do anything. To date African Americans make up less than 6% of freshman at these elite schools and that number has not changed since 1980.
We believe exposure to these great institutions will broaden their vision, expand their goals and allow them to experience something new. This tour is sure to excite our college bound students by introducing them to some of the most academically challenging universities.
We believe that we have the responsibility and the power to point our youth in the direction in which they should go. Our endeavor is to direct them in the path of excellence. We also believe that it takes a village to help raise a child. Therefore, we humbly request your financial assistance.
We will be touring the following institutions
· University of Tennessee
· Johns Hopkins University
· Delaware Valley College
· Lancaster Bible University
· Columbia University
· Cornell University
· Fashion Institute of Technology
· Boston University
Your generous contribution will help with the following expenses:
*15 passenger van rental $928
*Gas Estimate $400
We would like to reach our goal by March 1st 2018.
We will be eternally grateful for your assistance in helping us reach our goal. Your contribution may be the very seed that has the ability to change the trajectory of our youth from becoming ordinary to extraordinary.
Thank you in advance for helping us reach our goal!
Sincerely Faith Tabernacle Youth Department
