Introducing the Guided Pathway Support Program

A Ron brown scholar program initiative

GPS uses a “high-tech and high-touch” advising and information sharing model to empower African American high school juniors, seniors, their parents and counselors during the college preparation and selection process. It guides students along these journeys via tele-mentoring, leadership conferences, and exposure to successful peers on the GPS Workplace by Facebook platform.

"We continuously challenge ourselves to impact potential leaders through our motto related to social change, ‘the Value of One, the Power of All.’ GPS will positively impact tens of thousands of lives and careers."

Mike Mallory - President & CEO, Ron Brown Scholar Fund
