College Exploration

We believe exploration is the first step toward empowerment.

In order to imagine their brightest future, we believe our youth need to walk the road that will lead them there.

This is why we take our high-school youth on a College Exploration Trip every year. We want our youth to experience a college campus, learn more about majors and on-campus opportunities, and be inspired to start planning their next steps toward their professional goals.

These trips are vitally important for our youth because their visions for the future have often been viewed through the lens of limited resources and opportunities. With more than 80% of our youth coming from low-income families, college often doesn’t feel like an option. But we believe all youth deserve an education and the chance to dream bigger, because we know that every young person has something to offer the world.

Help set our youth on the road to college and career.
