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.
Posse started because of one student who said, "I never would have dropped out of college if I had my posse with me." That simple idea of sending a group of students to college together to act as a support system for one another was the impetus for a program that today has become one of the most comprehensive college access programs in the United States.
Since then, Posse has sent more than 2,200 Scholars to top-tier colleges and universities throughout the country. Nationally, Posse Scholars have won more than $220 million in scholarships from Posse's partner institutions and are persisting and graduating at a rate of 90 percent--significantly above the national average.
The Posse Foundation has three goals:
-To expand the pool from which top colleges and universities can recruit outstanding young leaders from diverse backgrounds.
-To help these institutions build more interactive campus environments so that they can be more welcoming for people from all backgrounds.
-To ensure that Posse Scholars persist in their academic studies and graduate, so they can take on leadership positions in the workforce.
