It's essential to recognize that experiences can vary, and not every student encounters the same difficulties. However, some common challenges include:

01.

Specifically address some of the obstacles and issues that many Black and Latino students face in higher education or their future careers. Obstacles include a lack of access to high-quality education, underrepresentation, educational gaps, prejudice, and economic inequality.

When concerns are overlooked, messages of invalidation and invisibility are sent, exacerbating the situation and leaving Black students underprepared for professional employment.

Unfortunately, many Black girls today will face many of the same injustices that their grandmothers did... in the classroom, lecture hall, and workplace. Much of the gaslighting, microaggressions, and discrimination they may face can harm their mental health and confidence, causing them to doubt their intelligence and abilities.

Ignoring these conversations is detrimental to Black women making plans for the future. At a minimum, awareness could help better prepare them for future events.

02.

Considering the previously mentioned challenges—which include resource allocation, institutional racism, economic disparities, limited involvement from parents, and cultural insensitivity—more assistance in college and career readiness has proven to be beneficial for many Black and Latino learners.

Extra resources can improve their educational experience, helping them navigate the complexities of the education system and prepare them for a successful future. 

04.

Without candid conversations and being made aware of future intersectionality risks such as racism, sexism, and discrimination, Black and Latina women may be disappointed to learn that college isn't always their ticket out or doesn't guarantee success, a job, respect, or equity. 

If students are not educated and equipped with techniques for making college work for them, it may be a set-up for greater financial problems with far-reaching consequences. An advanced heads-up, extra assistance, and awareness can empower learners, assisting them in selecting the best postsecondary choice for them. 

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING

"Her coaching style was excellent. She makes you feel confident and comfortable all in one. She puts a lot of work into what she does and she pours into you. She’s always engaged when you are expressing yourself and always has encouraging words. She helps you think with logic as well. I enjoyed the way she listens and hears you out before sharing what she thinks. She made me feel welcome and heard."

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE

1. Passion and Relatability:

Black Girl College Prep was founded by a first-generation college graduate who grew up with many of the issues and challenges faced by students from marginalized communities (limited parental involvement, single-family homes, economic disparities, lack of access to resources, etc.). She has dedicated her life's work to mentoring and advocating for young women.

Black Girl College Prep is committed to supporting marginalized students and families in breaking generational curses while dreaming and taking practical steps to accomplish those dreams. Our passion is demonstrated in everything we create, do, and offer, from free resources to books, workshops, and specialized coaching services.

Every workshop and webinar is facilitated by seasoned professional and industry experts, offering a wealth of knowledge, engagement, and practical insights. 

 

3. Interactive Learning:

We believe in the power of interactive learning. Our sessions include hands-on activities, discussions, and Q&A sessions to ensure active engagement and success.

 

4. Community:

We believe in the African proverb that it takes a village to raise a child and the Bible verse Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”

 

We’re just better when in community with others! At BGCP, we’re building a community of students, parents, advocates, experts, and educators. Join our community by connecting with us on social media channels, utilizing our services, and signing up for our newsletters and blogs.
