WITH STUDENTS

OUR
STUDENTS

Meet our incredible students. 87% of them are the first to attend college in their family. 100% enroll in a four-year college or university.

We work with students from 10th grade through college graduation to ensure that they make successful transitions from high school to college to career.

We're continuing to focus on growth in personal impact, programming, and student engagement.
