Challenge

Nearly 7,000 teenagers in the U.S. drop out of school every day and according to the Civil Rights Project at Harvard/Urban Institute report high school graduation is a 50/50 proposition for minority students. The dropout indicators become apparent at the middle school level. This project works directly with middle school minority students to demonstrate the connection between success in school and pursuit of a rich variety of career choices.

Solution

The Purple Feet Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization focused on getting students to think about their future. Each summer we host the thinc Program - a week-long residential experience for underserved middle school students from urban school districts.
This project sends twenty middle school students from underserved urban neighborhoods to a week-long summer enrichment program.

Long-Term Impact

The project will impact 200 minority students in the next five years inspiring them to think about their future and identifying the positive impact they can have on the world.
