College Tribe provides year round mentoring for 3rd-8th grade Black boys residing in Wards 7 and 8. The mentors are African-American men who have received a college degree or have achieved a military rank of Staff Sergeant or higher. Participants are grouped in squads of 5 boys to three mentors and meet two Saturdays a month. Activities include educational and recreational field trips throughout the DC metro area and workshop discussions with the boys about issues that impact them. Mentors execute College Tribe’s “Becoming an Adult” curriculum, which focuses on character, scholarship and social emotional development.
College Tribe provides twice weekly, after-school STEM, Arts, and Reading classes to 3rd-8th grade Black boys in select schools in Wards 7 & 8. Courses are offered throughout the school year and designed to develop competencies in STREAM topics including Photography, Robotics, Graphic Design, Coding, Music Composition, and Reading Comprehension.
STREAM Summer Camp
For 14 years, College Tribe has provided elementary and middle school students with a six-week summer program to strengthen their interest in Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math topics. The youth participate in daily STREAM activities and attend weekly educational field trips to STREAM-related businesses and programs. Our summer camp also provides Math and English tutoring to combat the "summer slide".
