The purpose of this project is to propose program enhancements to a mentorship program for high school-aged Black girls at West Charlotte High School. The goal of this proposal is to provide a more holistic program that will serve to address some of the racial disparities that are present in the CMS system. The racial disparities in education within the CMS system as well as throughout the nation are far too pervasive and strongly disadvantage students of color. Through this program proposal, I am seeking to have a small impact on this large, deeply rooted issue.
