     Student Testimonials

    “With this investment in my education there is another hand pulling me closer to solid ground. Solid ground for not only me to stand on, but to build something that breaks the chains that have kept my family and I down for so long. I want to shatter the glass ceiling that has been limiting black and brown boys for so long in this world and represent the change in this world we ought to be.”

    John Gwynn, Cohort IV ‘22
