Precollegiate African American males from Chicago participate in Guide Right Program mentoring initiative at IU
The Indiana University Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs and the Office of Admissions hosted 61 African American male precollegiate youth from the Chicago area on the IU Bloomington campus on Friday, April 27, 2012.
The young men are participants in a formalized mentoring initiative called the Guide Right Program, which is coordinated by Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. The Guide Right Program is designed to bring adult mentors together with male youth and to promote educational attainment by offering information, guidance, and inspiration.
The Guide Right participants obtained general college preparation information from the Office of Admissions, the Office of Financial Aid, and the Office of School and Community Partnerships. The Chicago-area youth also interacted with currently enrolled Indiana University students in a student panel discussion as well as participated in interactive workshop activities.
