Releve

Releve is Sabor's high school community impact initiative. Through this program the team aims annually to evoke the interest of high school students to seek a higher education; mimicking the action defined by the French noun, Releve strives to motivate students to rise.

Students accepted to the program spend a three-day weekend on Columbia's Campus. They are hosted by members of the team who not only provide them with housing for the weekend but serve as mentors to questions the students might have concerning college life and the application process.

The students undergo various workshops in financial aid and admissions which are made to provide essential information about how to apply to college and how one goes about seeking and receiving financial assistances. The program also provides a chance for students to learn about different arts through dance workshops and performing arts workshops that include vocal, theatre, spoken word and visual arts.

This program is not only meant to be fun and educational but was established to give under-served students awareness of the opportunities available for pursuing a higher education.

Sabor is committed to motivating students of under-served backgrounds to seek a higher education; money doesn.t have to be a deterrent at achieving one.s life goals.

All revenue from their fall performance is used for this project in order to provide the essentials necessary for a successful, informative and enjoyable three-day visit for the Releve students.

High Schools that have participated in the program include:

  • Fordham High School of Performing Arts

  • Talents Unlimited High School

  • Freeport High School
  • The Releve Program usually takes place late March early April if interested in applying or know of someone who might be please contact Sabor at sabor_board@columbia.edu. Below you can find last year's application.
