How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our first Scholars - children from low-income families -  were recruited in 2003.  One hundred percent finished high school on time or early and all were accepted to institutions of higher learning.  Our second group will graduate in 2012 - again 100% graduation rate as to compared of a city-wide average of 46% for the same demographic.

Programs

Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Our program selects promising students (Scholars) in the 4th grade whose families lack the financial resources to afford college. Scholars are then matched with individuals or families (Partners) who agree to pledge $100/month for 10 years toward a college investment/savings fund. Partners also agree to contact their Scholar every month and provide encouragement and guidance over that 10-year period.
