In February, we celebrated our 2020 cohort at College Dreams. A few short weeks later, we were caught in the COVID-19 crisis. Now, they are faced with a choice between funding their future and securing basic needs like housing, food, and medical care.
First-generation students are working harder than ever to secure a future that will provide economic opportunities for their families. They will be nurses, teachers, and business leaders.
But, more than ⅔ of our College Success students are worried that they can’t afford to return to school this Fall. Your help is more important than ever to remove barriers between these hardworking students and a brighter future. Through June 30, Countdown to College will raise $13,000+ to provide scholarships and financial assistance for students in need.
