JAY-Z Helping Students Visit HBCUs With Shawn Carter Foundation Bus Tour

JAY-Z is looking to provide the next generation with the tools for them to lead prosperous, enriching lives. The Shawn Carter Foundation has just announced plans to partner with the automotive manufacturer Toyota for the annual HBCU tour bus. Since its inception in 2007, the program allows high school students the opportunity to visit several historically black colleges and universities around the nation, as they begin to make their college decisions. The program has aided kids from 125 schools in the New York/New Jersey area with various college prep courses, as well as the opportunity to speak with college counselors and scholars who have previously participated in the initiative. The students have visited schools in cities like Washington D.C. and Atlanta. More info below!
