Black males in the United States experience significant obstacles in preparing for college and are historically the lowest performing demographic group (by race/ethnicity) to obtain a college degree. This project researched local community and after-school programs through interviews and focus groups to identify culturally responsive and asset-based strategies and practices. A mentoring plan was proposed for WPI to support Black male high school students in Worcester with navigating their college and career pathways.
