The Get to Know Me vision project is a cultural awareness program geared towards high school, college-bound seniors. University student volunteers led high schools students through a series of discussions about their (the high school student's) own communities, stereotypes and how they break those stereotypes.
The program aims to help them understand similarities between them and those who, on the outside, seem "different," and encourages them to attend cultural events when they get to college. Get to Know Me's vision is to create inclusive, space college campuses for every student.
So, get to know me!
