Our Mission: The mission of Educational Student Tours, Inc. is to create the opportunity for foster and low-income tour participants to attend four-year Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in order to transform their lives. However, you do not have to be a foster or low-income student to participate. Our tours are open to all students interested in attending HBCUs.
Our Services: We provide college counseling, assistance with college applications and finding money to pay for college. Additionally, we provide emergency funding for tuition, housing, and application fees for foster youth.
Impact of Our Work: 4,500 students have participated in our program, 99% are enrolled in college, and 80% are enrolled in HBCUs.
