What is Urban 4-H Youth Futures: College Within Reach?

Urban 4-H Youth Futures: College Within Reach prepares students to be the first in their family to attend college. The project includes on-going local mentoring, ACT prep sessions, applying for scholarships, college tours, and college emergence experiences on the campuses of Alabama A&M University and the University of Missouri Columbia.

The goal of the program is to prepare first-generation middle and high school youth for college through leadership, mentoring, life skills and positive youth development. Youth, mentors, and parents will be engaged in a mentoring relationship for 12 consecutive months.
