Impactful Programs

Our program’s core values contribute to the success of the college students we are able to retain, develop, and graduate.

Our values are aligned to ensure the best chances of success for countless college students.

Retention

Every year, we are losing talented college students. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, we lose over 64% of minority college students who attend college. Our Foundation values college retention as a gateway to increase of self-sufficiency for countless students.

Development

While in college, students have the opportunity to develop marketable skills that help them to find gainful employment. According to the Society for Human Resources, companies spend on average $4,129 to train and onboard employees which can be too costly for companies. We believe that we can make an investment in students during their college years, through over 30+ hours of professional development and life skills training.

Graduation

After graduating from college, we want for students to find ways to become productive members in society. According to the New York Fed, 44% of college students are underemployed, meaning that they are more highly skilled than the jobs they take require. Utilizing their developed soft skills skills and knowledge, we equip them to become leaders in corporations and communities in which they live and serve are improved. Our investment in our students during college will help to prevent underemployment and advance communities.

Former President Obama's 2020 Higher Education Goal

In higher education, the U.S. has been outpaced internationally. And while more than half of college students graduate within six years, the completion rate for low-income students is around 25 percent. Former President Obama set a new goal for the country that by 2020, America would once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.
