Thanks to our corporate partner, The Wachovia Foundation, and
our Tour Zone sponsors, more than 15,000 students turned out for
UNCF’s HBCU Empower Me Tour to learn about how to use their
education as a tool toward achieving financial success.
They heard “CSI:NY” star and author Hill Harper tell them how
they could start building wealth while they were still in college.
They connected to some of the nation’s leading public
service organizations, like Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
and Teach For America, and they interacted one-on-one with
representatives of some of the country’s leaders in corporate
social responsibility—Wachovia, American Airlines, Fed Ex, Ford
Motor Company and Amtrak.
During the coming year, expect a bigger and better HBCU
Empower Me Tour with content and outreach related to the
challenges facing students today: financial literacy, health and
wellness, professional development, entrepreneurship, the
environment and service and philanthropy.
We look forward to seeing you this
coming school year on UNCF’S
HBCU Empower Me Tour!
