Charlotte, N. C. – The National Coalition of 100 Black Women Inc., Queen City Metropolitan Chapter (NCBW-QCMC) will host their Bridging the Gap event, a series of college readiness and success workshops beginning January 12.
The two-part workshop will help students and parents navigate financial pathways to college, application processes, requirements, and more. The first event will be virtual in partnership with the College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC). The second event is scheduled for March 16.
This is part of NCBW-QCMC’s commitment to providing resources that promote educational and financial equity to underserved Black parents and youth in the greater Charlotte community. This program is free of charge to participants.
With college enrollment for Black women and girls declining over the last few years (post-pandemic) and with the rising cost of higher education, the time is now to bridge the gap and improve opportunities for our black communities.
Both events are open to high school juniors, seniors, and parents. Enrollment is still open. To learn more, visit www.ncbw-qcmc.org.
For all media inquiries or to schedule an interview with event organizers, contact Jameka Whitten at 704.965.3297 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
