The Club 2012 Phenomenon: How Parents Can Partner with Schools for the Academic Success of African American Males

Every parent of a young African American boy should read this book! The groundbreaking Club 2012 has become the gold standard for parent engagement and school system collaboration.

Ms. Carpenter has evolved the Club 2012 and subsequent clubs into Excellent Options Clubs. Their goal is to reduce or eliminate the achievement gap experienced by so many males of color.

Packed with real life examples and commentary from the young men and their parents this book is a guide on how to start an Excellent Options club in your school system.

The 2012 program was the beginning of greatness for our son.  The program stimulates mentorship, healthy competition, and lasting friendships.  It was during this program that our son began to understand the importance of education and performing at a level of excellence.  He has completed undergraduate school with a Bachelors Degree in Biology, currently enrolled in a Masters program, and plans to attend medical school.  I am convinced 2012 sparked the vision our son needed in order to strive for greatness and he is accomplishing those goals.  Gabrielle, thank you for all your hard work. We are grateful.
