In April 2023, we extended a warm welcome to nine scholars from Watts, participants of our partnering organizations, Operation Progress and Strive. This eventful journey brought them to Boston for an immersive experience that encompassed college visits, professional development sessions, and engaging cultural activities.
Our scholars, hosted by local families, embarked on tours of prestigious institutions including Endicott College, Northeastern University, Boston College, Bentley University, and Harvard University. Our captivating roster of speakers included professionals from diverse fields like nursing, FBI, engineering, college admissions, journalism, finance, and non-profit leadership. Of course, what's a weekend in Boston without dinner in the North End and a trip to Fenway!
