Project Identity is a federally funded program designed to stimulate interest in college attendance and the awareness of college entrance requirements for academically talented African-American and other minority males in elementary, middle and high school. Knowing the importance of higher education, participants receive an early start on pursuing, enrolling and succeeding in college through exposure to the humanities, mathematics, science, business and economics as well as social science courses in a rigorous yet fun and exciting setting. Through the use of faculty and college staff, college students and community partners, Project Identity’s Saturday and Summer institutes provide a network of support, not just for the participants but for the adults who influence them, specifically their parents, school counselors and teachers.
The vision of Project Identity is to create a learning environment for participants by providing the best academic resources so that learning extends beyond the classroom and into their community. The road to his future starts now.
