A Walk for Education

The goal of A Walk for Education (AWFE) is “to increase awareness of the opportunities available through education particularly in the STEM fields and to shatter myths about African-Americans in math, science, engineering and other technologies.” AWFE is a chapter-based program in which NSBE members go door to door in underserved Black communities and hand out information on college, scholarship information, SAT/ACT preparation tools, NSBE and share information on the benefits of majoring in STEM fields. AWFE is the primary outreach and advertising mechanism of TORCH.


In light of the risks of COVID-19, the NSBE PRO-PDX chapter has moved the academic success resources of AWFE to this page, which will be shared digitally (and physically once safe to do so).
