Big news! Watch The Yard is teaming up with HBCU Change who is bringing Gary Vaynerchuk and Daymond John together for a virtual event with HBCU administrators to talk about ways that they can improve the brands of their schools, engage students and increase their donors in this digital age.

The virtual event will be moderated by Watch The Yard founder, Jonathan Rabb and is a part of HBCU Change’s  “Keys to Growth” series.

Keys to Growth is a monthly series thrown by the new HBCU donation app HBCU Change designed to empower HBCUs, alumni, students, and supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities. 

Media partners for this event include Watch The Yard and HBCU Buzz.

“I am extremely excited about interviewing Daymond John and Gary Vaynerchuk about their thoughts about the ways that HBCUs can grow into the next decade. As trailblazers in their respective fields, the insight that they will be able to bring will be extremely impactful,” Watch The Yard Founder Jonathan Rabb stated.

Participating HBCUs include FAMU, Clark Atlanta University, Alabama State University, Bethune-Cookman University, Paine College, Benedict College, Stillman College, Fort Valley State University, Lincoln University and Alabama A&M University.

“In additions to being committed to raising $1 billion dollars over the next 5 years for HBCUs, we are also committed to helping our HBCUs to become self- sustaining and not have to rely on government funding and sporadic big donations to keep their doors open.” Steve Canal, Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of HBCU Change stated. “In keeping true to our mission HBCU Change ‘Keys to Growth’ is designed to empower HBCUs, Alumni, Students, and Supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities by exceeding their potential in the areas of marketing, digital marketing, content production, brand identity, financial stability, strategic partnerships, and more.”
