The Statistics

Speak For Themselves

Potential is equally distributed, but opportunity is not. Today in Massachusetts, only 18% of low-income students who enroll in college are expected to graduate. Due to systemic failures, Black and Latinx students are earning postsecondary degrees at half the rate of white students – and this gap is growing. And all of this is true in a state where college degree holders can expect to earn twice as much as those with only a high school degree. As a national leader in education, Massachusetts must do better if we hope to realize a future of equity for all.

Statewide Impact

We partner with high schools in Attleboro, Boston, Fall River, Lawrence, Lynn, New Bedford, Revere, Southbridge, Webster, as well as MATCH Charter Public High School. We will continue to pursue state-wide impact by deepening our current partnerships as well as expanding to meet local demand across the Commonwealth.

Meeting the Moment

With the unprecedented challenges of the 20-21 school year, we are excited to offer our engaging, remote-ready program to fit the changing needs of students and schools. Our state-of-the-art online platform helps teachers focus on the critical relationships and social-emotional supports our students need, while ensuring they get key information and tools to keep their postsecondary goals on track.

Meet Amanda

“As early as 4th grade, decisions were already being made about whether I was college material or not. Doors opened to me wouldn’t be opened to my peers. I work to ensure all students can choose the postsecondary path of their choice – not a path that was chosen for them.”
