Make your education a top priority.
Imagine a life and career full of possibilities with a college education.
Know that a successful college career requires hard work, dedication, and sacrifice.
A college education can take you into a career that you really care about: marine biologist, programmer, writer, teacher, veterinarian, lawyer, entrepreneur, and computer specialist, whatever. The choice is yours, and it's important to realize that. You only live once, and a college education can help you make the most out of your life.
College is the right place for Everyone!
College is about defying expectations, breaking the mold, and finding yourself. College is also the key to increasing your economic mobility, unlocking your earnings potential and shattering preconceived financial expectations.
When you step outside of your comfort zone and onto a college campus, you enter a world filled with new faces, diverse backgrounds, and different worldviews. A college community broadens your horizons, stimulates personal growth, and encourages a period of self-discovery.
The mission of PRIDE Museum is to PRESERVE the history of African American technical and scientific pioneers in California's Silicon Valley, RESEARCH their footpaths of innovation, INVOLVE the minds of youth in understanding the magnitude of the achievements, DEVELOP broad educational collaborations and community partnerships and ENRICH the lives of youth and their families with success models that will impact generations.
