Homegrown in Chicago

In 2006, one year before OneGoal was founded, 6% of Chicago Public Schools ninth graders were projected to complete college. While that number has risen to 19%, we know far too many young people who aspire to complete college are still being pushed out of education somewhere between high school and college graduation.

Scaling Up

We’re working to bring our in-school, teacher led model to students in every Chicago neighborhood by adding new high school partners and growing the number of students we serve in our current partners. We will not rest until all of our city’s students have an equitable opportunity to pursue their chosen postsecondary path.

Attend Our Gala

Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning, or only recently learned about our work, our Graduation Gala is a night you won’t want to miss. Join us on Wednesday, May 6, to celebrate our rising college freshmen and raise critical funds to fuel our movement. Together, we can make our city a place of equity.
