On Saturday October 10th, Northeast Middle School students attended the UNCF Empower Me Tour held at the University of St. Thomas. The Empower Me Tour is a free, traveling, college- and career-readiness roadshow sponsored by UNCF (the country’s largest minority education organization.)
The UNCF Empower Me Tour was created to help prepare students for college while inspiring them to take control of their futures by using education as the foundation for achieving their goals and dreams. The Tour provides students and parents with a full day of college and career workshops and engaging panel discussions with special guests.
This event was supported by the GEAR UP Program at Northeast Middle School. GEAR UP = Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs.
