THE STORY:

A Cause I am Passionate About:

I would like to Thank You all for visiting our page and donating to an amazing cause that is capable of lining our youth up for success! 

Our Youth are suffering because of how inadequately they are being prepared to go out and obtain a college education. Low income, minority students face a number of life obstacles, and being in the know about how to excel academically doesn't need to be an additional hinderance. I am a first-generation college student, and I know first hand how dense the college jungle can be. I passionately want to see our youth better equipped to conquer their goals.

"Preppy, a mobile college counseling app, is designed to target the specific needs of this under-served population. Preppy is intended to help parents and high school students navigate the maze of college preparation. From mobile devices, users will have access to personalized preparation plans that includes resources to help determine college major, narrow college choices, search for scholarships, and prepare for admissions tests. The app will distribute valuable college preparation knowledge through personalized quizzes, videos, calendars, task lists and reminders. Each user will have a personalized collection of resources. Funds will be utilized to secure high quality developers and graphic designers to complete the first version of the mobile app. If you were the first in your family to go to college and you beat the odds, please pay it forward to help the next generation!" ~Dr. Erin Wheeler

Thank You for playing a role in bettering the opportunities available to our youth! ~Ebony Blackwell, M.S.
