Empower Me Tour Offers On-site Job Opportunities, Career Prep for College Students

Next stops: Nashville, March 24, Baltimore, March 31


The UNCF Empower Me Tour (EMT), a free, traveling college-and-career-readiness roadshow presented by Target, continues its spring 2017 tour in Nashville, TN, March 24, at Fisk University, then moves on to Morgan State University in Baltimore on March 31.

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 event is free and is open to HBCU and non-HBCU students in the areas as well. The free career-readiness event inspires HBCU youth to excel in academic, financial and personal responsibility; on-site internships and job opportunities are offered. >> Read More
