" I am thrilled to be united with game changers across the world rallying around issues of such deep significance. I am energized by the desire of the Millennium Fellows to strengthen both local and global communities. I want to use this opportunity and these connections to better the landscape of educational access in both Charlotte and North Carolina. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: UNCC-CMS College Bridge
The UNCC-CMS College Bridge's primary goal is to increase accessibility of college entrance to students in the Charlotte area who may be unsure of their ability to pursue a higher educational career. Mentoring relationships between UNC-Charlotte students and Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) students will allow CMS students a direct contact within the sphere of higher education. UNCC students will be there to answer questions about academics, their career goals, the financial reality of attending a four-year university, and any other concerns these high school students have. Our goal is to create 50 mentoring relationships by December 2020.
