On April 14th I shall be attempting to crawl, slide and splash my way to the end of the Miami Triathlon.
While success is far from guaranteed, any charitable donation to Prep for Prep will be gratefully received.
I am honored to have joined the Associates Council of this wonderful organization and thought this would be a good opportunity to spread the word for a great cause.
Prep for Prep is a not for profit that provides access for top students of color from distressed neighborhoods to some of the finest schools in New York.
Prep provides a program that guides, supports and prepares the students over 14 months for the rigors of attending a top school. The goal is to prepare these exceptional students for leadership roles in our society.
The students have access to over 70 independent schools and prep places approximately 200 candidates per year. Prep supports the students throughout their academic career and assists in their preparation for college and the job market. Prep has been running since 1978 and has provided exceptional opportunities to over 5,000 students.
The money Prep raises is used to find the best students, offer academic programs, provide guidance and counseling, and deliver leadership development opportunities. The investment that Prep makes is leveraged 6x by financial aid awards from independent schools and colleges.
Thank you for your support!
