Learn more about the Chauncy Glover Project: The Chauncy Glover Project (CGP) recognizes the significant level of concern about the underachievement of black and Latino men relative to their peers. We are determined to stand up for social justice and question the roles of power, privilege and oppression that have led to this achievement gap. The program helps black and Latino men who have potential but lack the guidance and support needed to be successful after high school graduation through culturally and gender-appropriate mentorship. The framework of our program provides a unique opportunity for young men of color to experience academic success by establishing a sense of trust, brotherhood, empowerment and responsibility, not found in their daily experiences. Grant funds will be used to help pay for staff, professional services provided including tutoring / test preparation and workshop facilitators, field trips, program activities and mentoring conferences, supplies and equipment such as food, program materials, uniforms, staff education and training, and branding / marketing
