Kings In The Making

The Kings In The Making TFI Program is a 3 year college access program in partnership with JP Morgan Chase’s Fellowship Initiative (TFI).


We work with Kings starting at 10th grade through to their senior year on academic advising, tutoring, literacy and reading comprehension, financial literacy, mentorship and career and professional development.

Program Overview

This program aims to address 3 primary college readiness issues faced by Black and Latino youth:

access to rigorous college preparatory courses

access to experienced teachers who have high levels of cultural competencies when working with boys/men of color

 access to consistent guidance counseling to continually track students’ academic performance and college  application process.

We meet 3 Saturdays a month at arroyo viejo recreation center, go on field trips and college tours and learn about different careers from experts in their respective fields.
