College Tribe’s model is as unique as it is critical: Black men mentoring Black boys and creating STEAM leaders in Wards 7 and 8. Founded in 2007 by four African American fathers, the mentoring program cultivates strong bonds between boys (grades 3-8) and men who look like them, believe in them, and model success, respect, and integrity. Twice a month, mentors and mentees meet in small groups for seminars, tutoring, and field trips. Many also take part in College Tribe’s after-school and summer STEAM programs, which include nine-week courses in computer engineering, solar energy, robotics, video game design, and more, at four local public schools. Boys learn to think critically and develop skills for promising careers … all in the company of peers and role models. Reaching 80 boys each year, College Tribe is ready to grow. You can help.
COVID-19 Update: Mentoring, STEM, arts and all programs that were originally offered in an afterschool format have now been moved to online settings, both pre-recorded and live. CollegeTribe has increased its program partners and made adjustments to the services offered to families. Partnerships during COVID-19 allowed made it possible to provide months of groceries to families in need.
