Closing The Gap: Supporting Worcester young Black men in navigating post-secondary education and career pathwaysPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
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.
