We appreciate your patience as we navigate this unprecedented time in our country. As the situation with COVID-19 evolves, we will send an email to each family regarding the summer tours to keep you informed. As of March 16, we have canceled all spring tours.
Black College Tours

With your help, we can continue helping foster youth attend the tours. Please consider making a donation to a student in the foster care system.

 Donations Are Now Tax Deductible!
Educational Student Tours is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt organization designated by the Internal Revenue Service. The Internal Revenue Service granted us 501(c)(3) status on July 9, 2003.

 Vision Statement
The vision of Educational Student Tours is to be the premiere Black College Tour program in the nation.

 Mission Statement
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.

 Goal
The goal of our program is to decrease the achievement gap between participants of low socio-economic backgrounds and their more privileged peers.

 Did you know that...

  • For every 100 African-American students in kindergarten today, only 13 will graduate from a four-year college.
  • Of all the foster youth who attempt college, 97% will fail without a support system in place.
  • Foster youth - those who have spent at least one year as a ward of the court after age 13 - are among America’s most disadvantaged in terms of opportunities for higher education.
