Higher education provides financial stability and increased job opportunities, ending the cyclical dependence on welfare. As research proves, the number of years of college completed is directly related to economic self-sufficiency.
There is a disparity in academic opportunity between low-income students and their more affluent peers. In our program, students receive personally relevant, engaging experiences through career-oriented lectures and mentorship opportunities. We endeavor to inspire and uniquely impact young women’s life goals and achievements by exposing them to previously unimagined college and career opportunities.
To provide low-income, high-potential young women in high school with the necessary skills and tools for future success in academia and the workplace. We do this by building an adult and peer mentor network and an academic support organization that serves young women nationwide.
Our rigorous academic program focuses on educational goals and progress towards high school graduation, building college level study habits and writing skills, equal access to quality education and multiple long term mentoring relationships.
