Preparing for Our Tomorrows: Succeeding by Maximizing the Preparations of Life

Success starts with planning your future, not just in the education area, but in every other area of your life. There's no substitute for a sense of certainty. "Preparing for our Tomorrows" offers critical advice for ordering our lives on every level, including friendships, marriage, dating, finances, child rearing and more.


A Call For Mentors

Lack of black educational leadership in grade schools across the country is a big problem, especially for African American students, the black male in particular. For black males, the high school drop out rate is staggering. However, a successful solution to this challenge is to organize a campaign encouraging more black male professionals to invest in educational leadership. Black males need mentors and role models who can provide direction with patience and understanding. Below is a list of grants and scholarships for those individuals interested in pursuing a career in educational leadership.
