Smith University, NC A&T University, and NC State Univerisity NSBE Chapters looks to hold our 4th annual local A Walk for Education (AWFE) in the underrepresented minority neighborhoods, specifically the Ivory/Baker Recreation Center area.
Goal: To increase awareness of the opportunities available through education particularly in the STEM fields and to shatter myths about African-Americans in math, science, engineering and other technologies.
Who will benefit? Students of all ages What will we do? Volunteers will walk door-to-door in a predominantly underrepresented minority communities distributing information about area college admissions, area vocational schools, GED,SAT/ACT, NSBE Resources, and financial aid. There will be an onsite college fair, as well as, S.T.E.M(Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) hands-on activity being conducted.
Who can participate? Anyone who believes that education is a good thing: a NSBE member, a Greek sorority and fraternity member, a company representative, a church member, and a college graduate as well as a non-college graduate. All are needed in this effort.
