First Generation College Student Day

We’re thrilled to launch a new campaign to shine a bright light on the skills, talents and accomplishments of first generation college students in honor of First Generation College Student Day.

Many of our Scholars are the first in their families to attend (and complete) college. They are trailblazers, and we couldn’t be more proud to work with them as they accomplish their goals.

In the spirit of being first, we’re launching our first ever peer-to-peer campaign to raise $5,000 for our Scholars—to get them to and through college. Spearheaded by alums Camellia Loojune and Jay Yaskanich, with the support of our Alumni Council, this effort will help us to broaden the community of support for every Scholar in our program this year.

Every dollar we raise will support more than 200 students as they follow their own pathways to success in college and life.
