Chaperoned Carver students board their chartered bus at the Carver Community Center for a life-changing, road trip over spring and fall breaks to the schools they aspire to attend. The College Tours introduce middle and high school students to the rigors and joys of a college education. School administrators, admissions and financial aid officers, college students including many former Carver YDP students, and others give tours, make presentations and interact with the visiting Carver students. Whether asking questions, touring the campuses, or sharing meals with former Carver peers now excelling at these excellent schools, the goal is to motivate each visiting Carver student to envision the future as a successful college student.

Our 47th annual College Tour took place from April 8 to 17, 2017. 


The schedule included Memphis College of Art (Memphis, TN); University of Memphis (Memphis, TN); Fisk University (Nashville, TN); Tennessee State University (Nashville, TN); University of Tennessee (Knoxville, TN); Johnson University (Knoxville, TX); University of Alabama at Huntsville (Huntsville, AL); Alabama A&M Huntsville (Huntsville, AL); Troy University (Troy, AL); and Alabama State (Montgomery, AL.); and then on to Six Flags in Georgia before returning home to Norwalk!
