Earlier this summer, Alexandria Wilson traveled to Memphis, Tennessee to attend a two-week intensive academic, community, and field experience where students from across the country learned about issues pertaining to social justice and inequity, particularly for people living in poverty and on the margins.
With similar missions and commitments to making college education more attainable, the partnership between Blackburn and Give Back is an excellent fit.
There are scholarships. There are mentoring programs. Give Something Back is both. Since 2003, Give Back has grown from one county to seven states. Our staff from three regions recently discussed best practices, collaboration, and the encouragement of organic growth of mentoring programs at the 2021 National Mentoring Summit. The presentation detailed how to adapt regional mentoring and scale a scholarship model nationally.
Jessica Finkbiner was one of the first employees to start the Give Something Back program in California in 2017. Learn more about our Manager of Admissions and Academic Services.
