Black Student Success Summit 2017
April 15, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Black Student Success Summit (BSSS) – Full day summit where high school and college students learn how to navigate the education-to-career pathways for various industries from Black professionals representing those industries.
The Career Professionals provide students with information necessary to overcome barriers to retention in both areas, delivered by educators with firsthand knowledge of our Black students’ challenges, and often lived experience.
The purpose of our Summit is to enhance students’ social capital so students begin to feel unlimited in their choice of careers, or entrepreneurial opportunities.
All BSSS activities are culturally specific, created and implemented by Black professionals representing both public and private sectors acting in concert with Black educators.
