So, You are watching the big college game and rooting for your old Alma Mater: The NCAA Basketball Tournament! The big bowl game! Did you know that over half the African American players that you see will not graduate college? We are dedicated to helping the national graduation rate among African American underprivileged college athletes that have exhausted their scholarship eligibility to play sports from well under 50% to 79%.(The data shows it is a financial issue as they are already Sr.'s)
The Problem; NCAA eligibility is 4 years. It typically takes 5-6 years to graduate. Only 18% of private college students graduate in four years; therefore, as a result, the vast majority of athletes need more than 4 years to graduate when support from when their scholarships end. Within sight of the finish line, the ball is being dropped! The financial aid and loan packages do not cover the cost in most cases and is compounded with the rising cost of tuition, not including room and board etc.
This project will solve the problem by highlighting this particular crisis in Higher education, by providing the support needed to help a potential graduate reach the finish line and their full potential as consumers in a global society, and being a vehicle directly targeted at a data driven scale that will be proportionate with the number of students that will fall short only because of financial need as a Senior athlete in college. Our graduation rate thus far is $100 %.
Silver Spoon Sports Inc. strives to be the base and a construct working in the lives of a certain problemed demographic unawares. The end result is a better world encompassing all people. The potential long term impact is to generate 4000 additional college graduates a year. On average each college graduate will earn $1,000,000 extra than a consumer without a degree. That is a potential long term monetary impact in America of $4 Billion each year we meet the $100M. $100M for $4Billion USA return
