HBCU Exploratory Program Research shows persistent socioeconomic inequality
is putting America's future at risk. Our nation's outdated approach to preparing students for success is both an outcome, and driver of this national crisis.We believe America's youth are entitled to
a more holistic approach to college & career readiness. So in 2019, HBCU First
launched America's first & only
national HBCU Exploratory Program.What is the HBCU Exploratory Program?
The HBCU Exploratory Program is a college success + career access program for Historically Black College and University (HBCU)
students. The program leverages the lived experience of HBCU alums to help Black youth navigate the college & career journey and bridge the gap
between learning and doing.The key dimensions of the HBCU Exploratory Program are
the HBCU Near-Peer Mentoring Program, HBCU Career Talks™, and our Micro Leadership Program.
