MCP Alumni Testimonial 2020
Est. in 2010, The Midwest College Project is a local nonprofit established to support minority students virtually, and in-person with college & career planning. We partner with industry professionals and thought leaders to design a robust program for coaching, professional skills, mentoring just to name a few. The name the "Midwest College Project" signifies our desire to cultivate home-grown talent by fostering alliances with local Midwest Universities to support diversity and inclusion admissions recruitment strategies. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are a lot smaller organization than many competitive programs which allows more hands-on attention and greater access to many resources.

"With wit and charm, Jacqueleen Crittle shares perceptive, ground-up lessons on growing children who will not only survive, but thrive.
"In a series of short stories told in loving yet plainspoken prose, Raising a Winner tackles the myths and misunderstandings about raising children.
"It’s a must-read road map to raising children that reveals as much about the parent as the child."
