Wednesday, July 1, 2020 – Bay area nonprofit, The Village Method, known for its cultural and educational youth enrichment programs has launched ScholarPrep Nation (SPN), a national college-access network to serve a primary audience of 8-12th graders.
SPN provides students with a virtual “village” of peers, parents, educational consultants, counselors, school administrators, and college recruiters. The platform grants students access to courses, monthly presentations from educational consultants, and access to regularly programmed interactive summits. The platform allows all subscribers to create profiles, participate in forum discussions, and interact with other members through private messaging. The content and engagement opportunities within the platform provide the relationships and information that students need for a successful college experience.
SPN stands apart from other college-access resources by providing a relational and Afrocentric environment that affirms students. Additionally, it confronts the problems of children getting lost during their academic journey, parents who are ill-equipped to help their children, overworked counselors, and Black youth suffering because of inadequacies of the public educational system. With SPN, these very preventable and solvable issues are met, to the success of students’ futures.
Hear from Mahea and Mark Gaskins, the founders of The Village Method and ScholarPrep Nation about the platform and how it will support the needs of the young people needing this unique learning environment!
