"The issues we face are not black or white but American.
Together we can make a difference.
There is nothing we can't do"
-Terry Hardy, Founder and CEO
We welcome participation from organizations, agencies, institutions, elected officials and more to stimulate college readiness, introduction to college and university representatives at the World of Soul College Fair/HBCU EXPO and developing an increase in the amount of available college tours through the Ride for CHANGE Ride for HOPE College Tours featuring historically black colleges and universities.
There are currently only 10-12 tours departing Chicago enroute to historically black colleges and universities accommodating approximately 540 students. With over 24, 000 graduating seniors from Chicago Public Schools alone there lay a sea of opportunity to create access through exposure to more students where they can connect with their cultural heritage and institutions. This unique tour allows students to become exposed to people that look like them live, love, learn, work and play in an educational environment while exploring their college options.
