The Angel City Chapter is extremely proud of our award-winning Achiever Program, which has served the Los Angeles community supporting male African American high school seniors prepare for college and achieve their life goals. The focus is to prepare these young men for the challenges of life with an emphasis on contributing to society and their community. Each young man interacts and bonds with male role models from the community who often work in the profession that the young man wishes to pursue. They receive assistance with college preparation, advice on entrepreneurial skills, participate in motivational workshops, including STEM, social responsibility and guidance in community involvement. Substantial scholarship’s and awards are a keynote of the program, over 3 million dollars, in scholarships and awards, has been given since 1982.
