Act Six connects local community affiliates with faith- and social justice-based colleges to equip emerging urban and community leaders to engage the college campus and their communities at home through a simple but powerful four-part strategy:
- Recruit and select diverse, multicultural cadres of a region’s most promising emerging urban and community student leaders.
- Train and prepare students in the year prior to college, equipping them to support each other, succeed academically, and grow as service-minded leaders and agents of transformation.
- Send and fund students together to select faith- and social justice-based colleges on full tuition, full-need scholarships.
- Support and inspire students to graduate from college and serve their home communities through campus supports, ongoing leadership development, and vocational connections.
Since 2002, Act Six has selected and trained 946 scholars from seven cities in 141 cadres for 17 partner colleges. Learn more about our Act Six network.
