A campaign by DuPage County ACT-SO

2023-24 DuPage County ACT-SO Student Fundraiser

DuPage County ACT-SO is an academic initiative of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). The ACT-SO program (Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics) was founded by renowned author and Chicago journalist Vernon Jarret in 1978. 

The DuPage County ACT-SO program provides African-American high school students in the Chicago area the opportunity to explore and challenge their interests and talents in the areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), Humanities, Performing Arts, and Business. Students go through a 7-month, intensive academic and artistic enrichment program and work with professional mentors to complete projects and performances in preparation for competition.

We are asking for your support to continue and enhance the DuPage County ACT-SO program.  

* B.A.S.E. (Business, Arts and STEM Excellence) is the 501c3 organization created to support DuPage County ACT-SO activities.  All donations are tax-deductible and should be made out to B.A.S.E.
