Project College Bound
Jan 15 - Jun 15, 2021
The switch to virtual school due to the COVID-19 pandemic was difficult for all of us, but more often than not, communities of color received the worst of it. Since this school year is more than half-way finished, we've decided to launch Project College Bound to celebrate graduating high school students of color across the country! If you are a member of the Class of 2021, share a little bit about your college plans with us and upload up to 3 photos. To participate, visit the link below!
