Welcome To The

GREG BUSH, JR. FOUNDATION

PURPOSE STATEMENT

The Greg Bush, Jr. Foundation, Inc. was founded to provide mentoring and scholarship to African American high school students who endeavor to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math, i.e., S.T.E.A.M. careers. The Greg Bush, Jr. foundation will seek to improve African American participation in S.T.E.A.M. higher-education and motivate our future Black leaders by providing structured learning activities to develop literacy and innovation with a focus on entrepreneurship.

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES

  • Intentional – Purposefully target African-American youth with S.T.E.A.M. career aspirations to empower them with the tools to overcome systemic exclusion.

  • Guidance – Encourage African-American students to pursue careers in S.T.E.A.M.
  • Innovation – New ideas that create change and disruption make the world-go-around. African-Americans built America and our innovation is the route of civilization.
  • Tenacity – We must see goals through to success. Anything worth doing won’t be easy.
  • Economic Empowerment – The Black Dollar is power and Black-owned S.T.E.A.M. business is the key to remedying economic inequalities.
  • Scholarship – Through scholarship, The Greg Bush, Jr. Foundation will do its part to help create the African-American leaders of tomorrow.

Our Mentoring Program

The Greg Bush, Jr. Foundation’s programs will be offered on a four-week educational track for each cohort of 15 students max. The students will meet once per week and be required to complete a questionnaire after each seminar. The questionnaire will be designed to prepare the student to complete a five-hundred word essay on the S.T.E.A.M. career that is of interest to them. The essay will be read by the student during the last meeting of the cohort.
