The focus of this event is to annually recognize the UNCF Portland Portfolio Project student graduates. The UNCF Portfolio Project is a college preparatory program for high students who are college bound. The program is hosted on the Cascade Campus of Portland Community College.
The Each One Teach One Event was the brainchild of former UNCF Portland Leadership Councl member Clarence Nesbitt and Michelle Harper, UNCF Portland Leadership Council Chair. It came from the idea of creating an event to bring the village together to celebrate high school student’s achievement and raise funds for the Portfolio Project and scholarships for Pacific NW students.
It is our responsibility as the village to invest, teach, pass on the knowledge so our youth will be prepared for the future.
The event has raised thousands of dollars for scholarships for Pacific Northwest students attending Historically Black Colleges/Universities and colleges/universities across the country.
