Do African American boys ages 11-5 benefit from attending the Black College Tours?

I am the Director of a culture specific prevention and early intervention program for at-risk African American males, ages 11-15. Last summer our program was fortunate to be able to take our participants to Washington D.C. We visited most all the historical sites, but the most rewarding and life changing experience for the boys was our visit to Howard University. These boys were between the ages of 11-15 many of which had never traveled outside their community. Some of the boys expressed little interest in attending college befor the trip. Yet, after visiting Howard University, many were excited about the possibility of attending college. Why?
