Expanding student support services from fifth grade through college and integrating a learner profile tool
By providing direct services during summer break and after school, and advocating for students and families within schools, Student U ensures that students in Durham, North Carolina, develop the academic skills and personal well-being needed to succeed in college and beyond. Its grant allows Student U to work not only with students in grades 6-10, but to continue working with them through high school and college graduation and empower students to become traditional and non-traditional leaders in their communities.
“We, the Student U students, are on the path to becoming teachers, leaders, community activists, organizers, and most importantly, world changers. We are putting forth the effort and continuously striving to discover our best selves while sharing our brilliance with the world.”
– Danielle Evans, Student U Class of 2017
