The Chuck Hill Unit was granted $10,000 for their project “Excel with Exposure” by the Hobbs Foundation. An aspect of this project is to actually take our high school members on college tours throughout the state of Florida. This past fall 30 Club members from 10th -12th grade went on a six day college tour trip to: USF, UCF, UF, FAMU, FSU, Morhouse and Spelman.
“Before becoming a member at the Club, I had no mentors or role models besides my parents. The Club staff has sat me down, and has had many one-on-ones encouraging me and giving me advice. With this college tour though, they’ve shown me…and I’ve begun to visualize myself being a student at these schools.” ~Evenson, Club member at the Chuck Hill Unit
