BENEFITING: BLUE ENGINE INC

ORGANIZER: BLUE ENGINE INC

EVENT DATE: Dec 01, 2011

THE STORY:

Of all the kids from low income communities who enter college, only 15% graduate. 

Blue Engine intends to fix that by making sure kids from low income communities are better prepared for the challenge of college. Blue Engine combats college under-preparedness by recruiting and supporting teams of recent college graduates who partner with classroom teachers to increase academic rigor in public high schools. (Click on the video in the bottom left of this screen to see how they do it.)

And it's working. In its first school year (2010-11), Blue Engine tripled the college ready rate in Algebra for its first partner school. 

Now, Blue Engine wants to do more. That's why they launched The December Campaign.

Year 1:  1 school, 1 subject, 12 BETAs, 180 students

Year 2:  3 schools, 3 subjects, 26 BETAs, 540 students

IT'S TIME FOR

Year 3:  Help us Expand our Reach.

Your donations will help Blue Engine expand in Year 3. 

Success in college is shaped by many factors, but research has consistently shown that academic rigor during high school is the single strongest predictor of whether students sink or swim once they enter college. The Blue Engine model was designed to help students master the advanced academic skills required for high school and college success. Blue Engine Teaching Assistants (BETAs) dramatically reduce instructor-to-student ratios (1:6) by collaborating with teachers to customize instruction, increase academic rigor and build empowering relationships with students at every academic level—not just high achieving students, struggling students, or students who opt into the program—starting day one of freshman year.
