After-school program prepares students for urban leadership

April 03, 2018

In the art room at Milwaukee College Prep’s Lloyd Street campus, middle school students stand in front of hanging panels, absorbed in painting colorful butterflies. In a nearby classroom, students take turns reading aloud from an historical novel about an African captive sold into slavery on her 15th birthday. Down the hall, younger children use playing cards to do multiplication activities and count by fives and 10s.

Although the Tuesday dismissal bell signaled the end of the day for most MCP students several hours earlier, the participants in the Future Urban Leaders Foundation program chose to stay and continue learning.
