Fenwick High School’s Black Student Union (BSU), is organized exclusively to support Black students and give them a safe space to discuss their ideas, cultures, and problems faced within the Fenwick community with Black and non-Black peers. BSU promotes discourse between all students and faculty at Fenwick regarding issues of race, particularly instances of prejudice an discrimination against minorities at Fenwick, and what can be done to combat this. BSU is committed to intellectual, cultural, social and ethnic diversity.
The vision of BSU is to provide Black students with peer support during their high school years at Fenwick High School; encourage Black students to pursue their goals of college enrollment at the universities they want to attend, foster a mentoring program for students entering as freshmen, maximize the participation of Black Student Union in the Fenwick Community and at Fenwick sponsored events, and provide youth outreach and increase recruitment efforts to predominantly Black middle schools and grade schools and neighborhoods surrounding Fenwick High School.
What We Do
