Harvesting Dreams is designed to increase the recruitment, retention, and academic success of African American students attending ICC. We explore some of the issues and challenges facing African American student, and develops strategies to enhance personal, academic, and career success.
We assist in the training and development of student leaders and mentors that will participate in actives designed to assist African American students in the Peoria are community and school system that consider enrolling at ICC.
We create opportunities to engage in group dialogue and activities that reduce self-handicapping behaviors and promote the successful transition to college. Speakers and workshops will impart information that will heighten awareness and prepare participants to enhance their success by giving tools that promote college and career success.
We meet every Wednesday on the East Peoria Campus — Leitch Career Center, CC102 from 12 – 1 pm. Please feel free to come back and participate in our discussion.
