College Readiness In TFS’ Elementary Afterschool Program, the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) are used as a foundation to expose our elementary students to college and various aspects of the college-going process. Students learn about topics such as time management, scheduling, selecting a major, and interviewing. In our Summer Program, students take part in HBCU-themed “Spirit Weeks” in which students select an HBCU to research and represent in presentations, music, and step performances, culminating in “Homecoming Week” performances to increase student enthusiasm for college opportunities. Career and college research, field trips, and programming continue throughout the school year.
