DMV, Baltimore: UNCF Empower Me Tour Coming March 31
The free college-readiness event, presented by Target, inspires HBCU youth to excel in academic, financial and personal responsibility, offering scholarships, on-site job opportunities and career prep for college students.
WHAT: The UNCF Empower Me Tour (EMT), a free, traveling college-and-career-readiness roadshow presented by Target, will stop at Morgan State University. The tour was created eight years ago by founding sponsor Wells Fargo to inspire students to take control of their futures by pursuing a four-year college degree and graduating with an education that prepares them for personal responsibility and careers in the 21st century. The UNCF EMT is also sponsored by FedEx, Procter & Gamble Co. and Delta Air Lines.
WHEN: Friday, March 31, 10:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.

WHO: The tour will welcome students from UNCF-supported historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and is free and open to non-HBCU students in the area as well.
WORKSHOPS: College students will receive expert tips on resume writing and job interviews, in addition to financial and “personal branding” advice. They will also have the opportunity to interview on site with select companies for internships or first-year job placements. View a complete schedule at empowermetour.org.
