About

Develops the leadership potential of able young people from segments of society grossly under-represented in the leadership pool from which all of our major institutions draw.

The mission of Prep for Prep is to identify and nurture a generation of leaders from minority group backgrounds who have the education, the skills, and the commitment to help guide this society towards a significant narrowing of the gap between the rhetoric of the American Dream and its blemished reality.

Prep for Prep is a long-term investment strategy to develop the leadership potential of able young people from segments of society grossly under-represented in the leadership pool from which all of our major institutions draw. By expanding the nation's leadership resources, we aim to impact indirectly on a set of inter-related problems that threaten to rend our society. Prep's strategy is to identify talented students from minority group backgrounds, prepare them for placement in independent schools, and provide a sense of community, peer support, critical post-placement services, and a range of leadership development opportunities. The Prep Community includes over 3,000 students and alumni.
