About Us

The Billy Weeks Fellowship Program (BWFP) is an education foundation that was established in memory of William Robert (Billy) Weeks. BWFP teaches at-risk youth college, career, and goal achievement skills. Students begin the program by developing a "High School to College Road Map" to ensure they know exactly what it takes to gain entry into college. Health and wellbeing is a major component of our curriculum. We use the analogy of training for and running a 5k race as a way to teach young people how to set and accomplish a challenging goal. Additionally, we provide college scholarships to students in need. Our program teaches young people conscious, life-long goal setting and achievement skills - enabling them to be successful students, and ultimately successful adults.
