Diddy Opens Charter School in Harlem
Diddy is doing big things for his old neighborhood. The 46-year-old mogul opened a charter school called Capital Prep in Harlem on Monday.
Major props are due to Diddy for this inspiring feat. The Bad Boy founder took to Instagram on Monday to make the announcement, typing, "Growing up in Harlem I always had a dream of opening a school with a leadership curriculum for our inner city youth. Through the grace of God and the support of the Harlem community my dream came true. I'm going from me to we!! I would like to thank Harlem, all my children in the school and the staff for making it happen!! #letsGO #CapitalPrepHarlem."
In a separate IG post, Puffy typed, "My mother taught me the importance of education at an early age. I was able to gain tools, secrets and knowledge about what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to win and what it takes to make your dreams come true!! That's what we're doing with #CapitalPrepHarlem!! We're empowering our inner city youth with the knowledge they need to be great!!"
Capital Prep will be Diddy's first experience with the education world. Puffy co-founded the school with Connecticut educator Dr. Steve Perry, who previously started a charter school in Hartford, Conn. Scroll up and scroll down to check out Diddy's Instagram posts.
