opening ceremony of Harlem Captial Prep, the rapper who is a native of Harlem mentioned that he Quote’
“I want Harlem to have the best schools,” … he added that ”Instead of me complaining about education, I want to do something about it. So that’s why I’m starting this school.
“Great schools and great education make a big difference,” said Diddy,
“Unfortunately, too many people don’t get the opportunity to succeed, no matter how hard they try. This is levelling the playing field here at Capital Prep.”
The late former president of South Africa Nelson Mandela, said ”“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” and by Diddy giving Harlem natives ( 176 students entering the 6th and 7th grade who were selected to launch the new program) this opportunity to educate themselves, will change their because they will better lives and bright future.

Such an inspiration!
My mother taught me the importance of education at an early age. I was able to gain tools, secrets and knowledge about what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to win and what it takes to make your dreams come true!! That’s what we’re doing with #CapitalPrepHarlem!! We’re empowering our inner city youth with the knowledge they need to be great!!
