Great Hearts Initiatives | The Posse Foundation

Mission

Posse is one of the most comprehensive and renowned college access and youth leadership development programs in the United States. In fact, President Barack Obama said in an interview in The Chronicle of Higher Education, “One of this year’s MacArthur awardees—the ‘genius’ awards—is an innovator named Deborah Bial. She proposed a model to identify promising students from…urban backgrounds using an alternative set of qualities as predictors of success in college. …The students that are selected form a ‘Posse’ and are provided with extra supports, and end up graduating from selective colleges with a very high success rate.”

Our Goals-

-To expand the pool from which top colleges and universities can recruit outstanding young leaders from diverse backgrounds.
-To help these institutions build more interactive campus environments so that they can be more welcoming for people from all backgrounds.
-To ensure that Posse Scholars persist in their academic studies and graduate so they can take on leadership positions in the workforce.
