I was moved by the unequaled efforts of E.S.T. to expose students to the rich heritage and academic value of our nation's historically black colleges.

A Message to Parents
At EST we are dedicated to the future of our youth. This is clearly evident by the fact that we have organized and conducted our award winning HBCU tours for over twenty years. There are many significant aspects of our program but none are more important than our sterling safety record. Every tour is well organized and supervised and we hire night-time professional security officers to make sure that all of our tour participants are safe.
Another key to our continued success is that an EST representative has and always will be a part of every group. Also, if quality is important, you need not look any further. At EST, consistent quality is one of our top priorities. Furthermore, EST is a federally recognized non-profit corporation. What does this mean for tour participants? It means that they can raise money from businesses and individuals and every dollar is tax deductible to the donor! Just click on the link below for a sample gift of education letter that you can send to individual donors or businesses.
In closing, we want you to know that the tours are not how we make a living—they are how we are making a difference in the lives of thousands of our youth. Without question, we are ready to provide this amazing experience for your son or daughter!
