Close Ties Leadership Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that empowers young men to enhance their skills in our five core principles of Brotherhood, Leadership, Altruism, Chivalry, and Knowledge. Instead of sleeping in and relaxing, the members of Close Ties Leadership Program will spend their Spring Break chasing their dreams on their way to and through college on our Second Annual Spring Break College Tour.
We know that a key to creating success in our community is exposure to different experiences and we want to give our young men the opportunity to visit new areas and tour as many college campuses as possible. Last year, we toured in-state universities: Georgia Southern University and Savannah State University. During our trip this year, we will travel out of state to visit the University of Alabama, Alabama State University, The Edmund Pettus Bridge, and Destin, Florida.
This is an expensive undertaking, but it's also a life-changing trip for many of our boys who may not be exposed to college-life otherwise. With that said, they have worked tirelessly to fundraise thousands of dollars for this trip already but we need your help to ensure that all 30 young men are able to embark on this amazing experience.
Your donations will be used to cover lodging, travel, activity, and meal expenses for 30 young men to attend the trip. All donations are tax deductible. We thank you in advance for investing in our future scientists, nurses, teachers, entrepreneurs, doctors, engineers, and leaders of America!
