#Weneedyourlight: An invitation to the students of Africa, Haiti, and Central AmericaDavid Coleman, President and CEO of the College Board
The College Board's members include nearly every college in America and our members are united. America's colleges are hungry for the strength and talent of African, Haitian and Central American students - we witness and admire the work they have done on campuses throughout this country. To honor that commitment, the College Board will today contribute $100,000 to the African Leadership Academy – a remarkable school that gathers promising students from across the African continent and prepares them for the best colleges of the world. The African Leadership Academy will dedicate these funds to aiding the transition of African students to colleges in America and around the world. We will look for similar opportunities to support students from Haiti and Central American countries.
Our purpose is to clear a path for all students to own their future. If you support or would like to contribute to our effort to welcome students from Africa, Haiti, and Central America please share your voice by tweeting #weneedyourlight.
