In January, West Prep celebrated college and career awareness! Throughout the month, students attended virtual tours of CUNY schools, where they learned about the college experience and application process. We hosted students from colleges such as Notre Dame, Howard, and Cornell who spoke with our scholars about college life. We reached out to our larger communities and enlisted more than 60 panelists in fields ranging from astrophysics to culinary arts! Our scholars were inspired as these guests shared their college and career experiences and answered questions about their journeys. We ended the month by hearing from our former students and current staff. Never has West Prep’s vision seemed more vital and true. “With the Work of All, we build a capable, caring, and inspired community.” Despite a global pandemic, we did just that!
WPA Titans were “Thinking Pink” all day on October 22th to support Breast Cancer Awareness! We started our awareness by first reading about how powerful letters of hope are for Breast Cancer survivors. In titan time we wore pink and shared our experiences knowing loved ones who were impacted by Breast Cancer and what we could do to spread awareness. #WPAspreadshope #BreastCancerAwareness #prettyinpink #thinkPink
