Mission Statement

The mission of the Posse Foundation is to recruit, train, and prepare urban youth leaders to succeed at top-tier universities.

Description

The Posse Foundation identifies, recruits and trains student leaders from public high schools to form multicultural teams called "Posses." These teams are then prepared, through an intensive eight-month Pre-Collegiate Training Program, for enrollment at top-tier universities nationwide to pursue their academics and to help promote cross-cultural communication on campus. The Posse Program has exhibited great success over the past 14 years placing 1,228 students into colleges and universities. These students have won over $112 million in scholarships from Posse partner universities and are persisting and graduating at 90 percent--a rate higher than the national averages at institutions of higher education.
