EVERY STUDENT DESERVES THE

OPPORTUNITY TO EARN A DEGREE

College Material? Absolutely.

OneGoal Fellows are proving that a postsecondary degree isn’t a privilege reserved for the few. They are redefining what it means to be “college material.”

We look at the whole student, not just current academic achieve or income bracket, because we’ve seen that all students have the power to succeed in their chosen postsecondary pathway. OneGoal prioritizes students typically overlooked by other interventions to help them tap into their unlimited potential, drive and passion.

Our Fellows' Voices

Reaching my
potential

x

“I think OneGoal helped instill that ‘hey, listen, education is important,’ especially for someone like me who had so much potential to do so many things. It felt like it would have been a waste almost if I didn’t take that opportunity to go to college.”

Caleb Navarro
Alumni, OneGoal – Chicago
Dominican University, class of 2018

Leaning into
Leadership

“Who would have thought three years ago that me – a non-English speaking Iraqi immigrant would be leading research at a university at the age of 19! If you had told me this back then, I would have thought you were crazy.”

Realizing
your dream

I was one of the first Fellows in our class to get a college acceptance letter. I remembered my Program Director writing it on the board and shouting out my acceptance to the rest of the class. It made me feel like I was ahead of the game.

REWRITING
MY NARRATIVE

OneGoal has given me a better understanding of how I can get to where I want to go. It’s not all black and white. It’s not, ‘You can’t go there because your grades are low.” I can be more than what I thought.

REDEFINING
SUCCESS

“One of the leadership principles I learned in OneGoal is resilience, and teaching myself to not view myself as a failure for needing more than four years to graduate college is the best example of it that I can imagine.”
