Diddy continues to support the education of the youth in New York. Combs helped to start the first Capital Preparatory School in Harlem. Now the mogul has announced an expansion school in the Bronx.
“I know from my own experience that receiving a great education makes a huge impact on a child’s future,” he wrote on Instagram. “I want our kids to have access to everything they need to succeed, in school and life. Which is why I’m also pledging $1,000,000 to help give our kids every advantage possible.”
The new charter, which is part of the Capital Preparatory Schools network, will launch in 2019.
