Our Mission

Our mission is to include both Financial and Support Services, thus providing a robust level of assistance that will motivate sponsored students to set high goals and confidently pursue a plan for admission to college.

To enable this to happen, we provide direct scholarships as well as assistance in applying for grants or scholarships provided by colleges and other third parties. We may also assist sponsored students in obtaining summer jobs or college internships from participating donors.

Less than half of students from low income families are admitted to college; and even when admitted many drop out for financial reasons and lack of a support network. We change this trend, one sponsored student at a time. Help us help them step up to achieve.
