THE STORY:

A former middle school teacher, I've devoted my career to educational equity and makig sure my kids have the opportunities they so richly deserve.  I am now the founding Director of Strategy and Development of Strive for College and am running to support our work in New York City.  Strive  is a unique response to the fact that every year, 400,000 low-income students graduate high school college-eligible but don't go.  Our mission is straightforward; that every qualified, low-income high school student has the information and support necessary to successfully enroll in their best-fit college.   

Strive bridges the information and guidance gaps our students face by leveraging the energy, influence and knowledge of undergraduates to guide others through the process.    We begin by setting up Chapters on college campuses and recruiting undergraduate student mentors from those universities.  Chapters then partner with a local low-income high school and college mentors work with juniors and seniors at these schools to provide them with personal guidance as they go through the college search and selection process, helping them with applying to, enrolling in, and paying for four-year colleges.

Our mission and model allow us to envision a strong network of Strive Chapters with undergraduate students mentoring high school students through the college search and selection process, producing a college bound culture in every high school in America, and a national movement of young people committed to boosting the college attendance rate of low-income students.

Thanks for your support and for helping us build this movement!
