Dyanmic Mentorship – UNITE Inc.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with the founder of UNITE Inc, Mr. Travis Smith. UNITE was founded in 2011 with a mission to promote leadership, scholarship, and social awareness while motivating and empowering youth to dream and achieve educational success.

UNITE provides a holistic mentoring approach that focuses on college preparation for high school students and college retention for undergraduate students. UNITE students participate in various activities including community service, professional development workshops, and an annual Spring Break HBCU College Tour.

To become a member of UNITE, incoming high school juniors may submit an application during the month of April, located on unitementoring.com. Students will be required to provide an unofficial transcript, essay, and a letter of recommendation. College students may get involved in the college retention program at Alabama State University by contacting Mr. Sharod Campbell at sharodcampbell@unitementoring.com.

UNITE Inc. intends to expand the organization further by offering career development services and graduate school preparation. Follow UNITE on Facebook for new programs, success stories, or to donate!

The Clemson Career Workshop


In July, Clemson University will host a college preparation camp for 50 high-achieving students. Rising high school seniors will experience college life through living in the residence halls, eating in dining halls, and taking classes with faculty. Below are some quotes from previous camp participants.

“My favorite parts of the camp were the classes and getting to know everybody.”
“My definition of success is many friends in many places – great stories and memories to share.”
“It was an honor to meet the president and learn interesting facts.”

Application Deadline: Friday, April 21, 2017.
Take advantage of this great summer enrichment opportunity.
