To increase the number of culturally responsible Black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community.
The Pre-College Initiative (PCI) Program is the focus of the NSBE effort to promote college, academics, technology, and leadership to pre-college students. Our primary focus is to encourage students in grades 6-12 to develop interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The mission of PCI is to lead the world in enhancing the pre-college students' academic, technical, and leadership skills in order to maximize their success in life. The vision is to establish PCI as an incubator for our youth, where they can be nurtured and guided in their academic careers. NSBE Chapters support PCI through the TMAL program and competition. The purpose of the TMAL competition is to increase at-risk Black students' capabilities when preparing for standardized tests that will allow them to excel academically and succeed in college. The goal of TMAL is to provide encouragement, motivation and incentive for pre-college students to sharpen their interest and STEM skills in order to prepare them for SAT/ACT standardized testing. TMAL is a national program that holds local, regional, and national competitions. NSBE Jr. A vital component of the PCI program is NSBE Jr., which serves as the membership category for pre-college students and institutions that are officially chartered with NSBE. NSBE Jr. members and chapters are at the core of PCI, as they are the primary focus and beneficiaries of PCI programs such as TMAL. NSBE Jr. focuses on enhancing the education received by African-American and other minority pre-college students, as well as influencing these students to become tomorrow's corporate executives, entrepreneurs, and leaders. In this spirit, NSBE Jr. is the quintessential recruitment, teaching, and preparation device for the NSBE.
