United States, SDG4: Quality Education

t.Lab

t.Lab

t.Lab is a high-performance learning laboratory for students in pre-kindergarten through undergraduate. One of t.Lab’s initiatives is the Drive to 25 that aims to increase the median ACT score of African American students from 16.7 (lowest in the country) to 25 (highest based on today’s benchmarks) by 2025 and direct them to STEM majors and careers. At present, African American students have the lowest secondary and post-secondary standardized test scores and measures of competence such as the ACT, SAT, MCAT, LSAT, DAT, GMAT, and GRE, among others. We found that there are strong correlations among these scores with several outcomes such as economic, health, social, and overall quality of life.

The Drive to 25 will establish a pipeline of over 250,000 African American students (and parents) and provide them with needed tutoring, coaching, and mentoring to realize the goals of the initiative.
