Buffalo Prep to welcome over 150 scholars, celebrate new partnership with D’Youville University at first annual Prep Rally

WHAT: BuffaloPrep, an organization dedicated to educational and racial equity for underrepresented youth, is hosting its first annual “Prep Rally” to welcome over 150 young scholars who will be participating in its academic enrichment programs this summer. The two-day student orientation will take place June 27th and June 28th at D’Youville University in The Hub, a state-of-the-art education, training, and community health center embedded in Buffalo's West Side.

D'Youville will also host Buffalo Prep's "Prep Scholars Academy" program on its campus this
summer. This five-week program is a neighborhood-based culturally relevant academic program designed to help scholars excel throughout middle school and prepare them for high school. It gives preference to Hispanic/Latino scholars and offers bilingual instruction.

Last month, Buffalo Prep executive director Patti Stephen was also appointed to the D’Youville University board of directors.

We hope you can join us to capture unique photo, video and interview opportunities.
