The Give Back Solution: To break the cycle for at-risk youth, we make education the common denominator.
The Education Class Divide
Across America, lower-income students with high test scores are less likely to graduate from college than higher-income students with low test scores. Higher education is a pathway to social mobility and financial stability.
A Model for Success. A Promise for Tomorrow.
Give Back provides mentoring, college readiness programs and scholarships to students who face adversity every day, but are still academically driven. Every Give Back scholar receives a full scholarship that covers tuition, fees, room and board, lifting the heavy financial burden and overwhelming debt associated with higher education.
