The African American Males Pursuing Educational Dreams program (AAMPED) began in the 2016-17 school year. It provides additional workshops specifically for African-American males to provide them with life and college success skills.

The team also goes to the schools in Forsyth County and provides on-site academies, on-site community service opportunities, and works with students on a 1-on-1 basis to help them complete the Crosby Scholars program. They hold drug-prevention workshops, take college tours, visit the International Civil Rights Center, and hold the “AAMPED College Success Camp.”

African-American Males had a 19 percent increase in completion in the Crosby Scholars program for this year compared to last year.
