THE STATISTICS

SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

By 2020, 72% of jobs in Massachusetts will require a college degree. Across the state, only 15% of students from households in the lowest economic quartile are projected to graduate from college, compared to 82% of students from households in the highest economic quartile. At the current college attainment rate, we are projected to have 55,000-65,000 fewer bachelors degree holders than jobs requiring that level of education.

FOUNDATIONS

OneGoal began operations in Massachusetts in 2015, establishing partnerships, building infrastructures, and recruiting schools and teachers to execute our three-year model.  We now partner with 12 high schools in the school districts of Boston, Revere, Fall River, New Bedford and Lawrence, and work with a number of postsecondary institutions in order to bring our scalable, teacher-led and proven model to the communities who need it the most.

STATEWIDE
IMPACT

OneGoal – Massachusetts, our first and only statewide initiative, currently partners with school districts in Boston, Lawrence, Revere, New Bedford, and Fall River and Match Charter Schools. We will continue expanding within these districts and will also use our innovative multi-cohort approach in single high school districts, allowing us to serve a higher percentage of students within one school building and strengthening our direct impact in that community.
