our HIGHLIGHTS & IMPACT
The PREP Factory has a proven track record for college and career readiness success. Through our Student Leadership Institute (SLI), academic workshops, and community building events, we’ve made an impact in ten states, garnering the interest of student and parents on an International level.
Twenty-five SLI students have been accepted into 147 colleges/universities and received almost $3.9M in scholarship offers. Additionally, we were highly instrumental in them securing competitive internships with the FBI Teen Academy, Children’s Defense Fund, PepsiCo, and Gucci.
Our annual college fair during the Jet Relays Soul Festival HBCU Track Meet allows us to host 15 - 20 HBCUs and other universities. We’ve negotiated for our partner institutions to offer admissions and award scholarships on-site. Almost 1,500 students have had direct contact with institutions like Texas Southern University, North Carolina A&T, Southern University, Morehouse College, and many more with $183,544 in scholarships offered in 2020!
Our annual College Trunk Party has been pivotal in assisting 63 young men successfully transition to college by providing them with dorm and school supplies.
Many of our programs and initiatives are largely funded by grassroots donations and supporters.
