Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
To support the advancement of HBCU students through travel.
HBCU Travelers is a newly formed 501(c)(3) public charity organization dedicated to encouraging and funding educational, international travel experiences for students of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. We strive to inform students about different opportunities to study, volunteer, or intern abroad, while also providing financial assistance. Our team is passionate about helping students develop personally and professionally through exposure to different cultures. We also hope to inspire students to embrace fear and expand their comfort zones.
To accomplish our mission we:
Promote: utilize online platforms as a shared space for experienced/aspiring HBCU travelers; organize campus outreach activities to educate students on the benefits of international exploration; and provide access to different internship, volunteer, and study abroad programs.
Fundraise: generate funding to award students with scholarships for international opportunities.
