A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with the founder of UNITE Inc, Mr. Travis Smith. UNITE was founded in 2011 with a mission to promote leadership, scholarship, and social awareness while motivating and empowering youth to dream and achieve educational success.
UNITE provides a holistic mentoring approach that focuses on college preparation for high school students and college retention for undergraduate students. UNITE students participate in various activities including community service, professional development workshops, and an annual Spring Break HBCU College Tour.
To become a member of UNITE, incoming high school juniors may submit an application during the month of April, located on unitementoring.com. Students will be required to provide an unofficial transcript, essay, and a letter of recommendation. College students may get involved in the college retention program at Alabama State University by contacting Mr. Sharod Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNITE Inc. intends to expand the organization further by offering career development services and graduate school preparation. Follow UNITE on Facebook for new programs, success stories, or to donate!
