The Need in Metro Atlanta

By 2025, 60% of jobs in Georgia will require a college degree or postsecondary credential. However, only 29% of students in Metro Atlanta are expected to earn an associate’s or bachelor’s degree within six years of high school graduation. The disparities in postsecondary completion widen for low-income communities, the majority of whom are students of color, at the exact time when postsecondary credentials have become more essential for accessing economic opportunity. Our collective responsibility is to ensure every young person in Metro Atlanta will have a path to social mobility through postsecondary achievement.

“That’s what OneGoal is all about: placing itself in the student perspective and serving as a guide and advocate for the students as they navigate the college application and persistence process, whatever their situation. That can make all the difference between earning a college degree and never making it onto a college graduation stage.”

Building Community

We brought together hundreds of Fellows from all of our partner high schools in Atlanta for an exciting day of exploring educational workshops, connecting with college representatives, and building connections across the OneGoal community.

Thank you to everyone who made this day possible!

Local Impact

We partner with 6 high schools across the city to integrate postsecondary planning into the school day. Together with district leaders, school principals, Achieve Atlanta and Learn4Life we are working to improve economic mobility among first-generation college students from low-income communities.
