We believe that our students are all noteworthy. This month, we invite you to join us in encouraging them on their journey to postsecondary education and beyond. We partnered with our talented friend, Christy Chang, to create this inspirational story about our students.
Check out our video and keep scrolling for more info!
This year, 12+ will be giving supporters a chance to not only give financially, but also share their words of encouragement with our students. With each donation, supporters will have the chance to write positive notes, which will then be printed and pasted on our "Noteworthy Boards" at our partner schools.

A message from a 12+ Fellow to a student, advisor to a mentee, friend to a friend
In What Sense?
Your tall, 6' 2" stature equips you with the eyes of an eagle
Strong upper body strength lends itself advantageous to scoring points in the paint
I admire the selection of words of wisdom that leaves imprints of impression
That I may understand the depth and the width of your modern sophistication
Your stellar academics and immovable integrity are greatly admirable alongside the Kings and Queens of the motherland
Let truth be known, before it's gone with the breeze, my brother, by means necessary
You may see the heads of others but Others sculpt the head of yours
The athleticism is engineered my friend and not intrinsic, heed poachers in a coach disguise
Your articulacy is diagnosed as a third grader, but let your voice speak
Although your vocal chords are cut short like a tamed sub-Saharan lion
Do they not know you are the ruler of your own will beyond the building that fosters ignorance?
Let truth be known, before it's gone with the wind, my brother, by the means necessary
Your height gives foresight to those who generalize you
They congeal limitations of your potential within their subconsciousness
Let Others scream, they will be labeled as criminals, let you scream, they will label you as a terrorist
Do not run from fear because that is true resignation; rather, let cuts heal as scars
Pain may heal with time, but the true warrior never aches under the oppression of Others
Let truth be known, before it's gone with the storm, my brother, by all means necessary
Leadership is easily practiced in the external realm, the inner realm is what challenges the human essence
Faith is where the heart sleeps, the clinching fists rest, and the consciousness relies
Are those trapped quiet? Or do they knock on the cage for escape? Or honor?
Others will make a legend of your failures but whisper your success as suspicious
Do not proudly display your wisdom and might, kneel before your ancestors
Let truth be known, before it's gone with the time, my brother, by any means necessary
