The Black Churches Project trains church teachers and tutors to help fill the gaps in the education that black students receive. Historically black students and the school districts that serve them have been underfunded but black churches are uniquely poised to reach a large number of students and provide them with resources they may not receive in school such as paying for field trips and offering courses in specialized subjects like computer science. The church also provides a space to learn spiritual and moral education to encourage the children to stay in the school system while also combining spiritual and scientific learning in harmony.
