The Ultimate Striving Experience. This project emphasizes 4 important areas: individual/self, home/family, community, and world interests. The BMW project is a structured mentoring program, directed to help young African American men in this community change their lives around, and then, be the same influence on high school and middle school students.
The focus of B & B adult mentors is to assist in improving the achievement and economic gaps for African American and other underrepresented male students by making education a first priority. The program responsibilities include; assisting and encouraging middle school students to improve reading, math, science and life skills in order to close the educational achievement gap. B& B mentors work specifically with Tates Creek and Winburn middle school at-risk male students and other middle school students as special need requests. The project is provided with funding from the Governors Minority Student College Preparation Program (GMSCPP); through the KCTCS Systems Office and the Kentucky Department of Education. Aim is to work and enhance student knowledge and awareness in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
