The Labelle Neighbors Who Care (LNWC) will accompany high school students to Maryland on April 15th to tour nine Historical Black College and University (HBCU) campuses throughout the southern United State for five days.  The goal is to assist students with looking towards setting their sights on a college education.  All high school students are welcome.

During the tour, students will speak with faculty, financial advisers and college students.  They will experience some of the activities of campus life.

Students will be closely chaperoned by caring, loving, no-nonsense parents.

Main Event Youth Organization (MEYO) has reduced the cost of the trip for students from this area to $420.00 which includes transportation, hotel accommodations, two meals a day, admission to Carowinds Amusement Park and other amenities.

LNWC is providing transportation to and from Maryland where the bus trip originates.  They will also try to assist financially in order to make this trip more affordable. The goal is to encourage students and their parents to take advantage of this reasonably priced opportunity for high school students to see that a higher education may be a possibility. This trip has turned lives around, helping students who had not considered college and who have not decided what they want to do after graduation, by offering them a choice.

The LNWC are available to speak to groups, students and parents.  If you need more information or for ways you can support students to go, please contact Asantewa Anyabwile @ 740.346.9925.
