On Saturday, December 8th, Bright Prospect staff and students will participate in this year's Holiday 5K Race to raise support for the Bright Prospect program!
Spread the word and encourage friends and family to donate because.... ALL NEW DONATIONS WILL BE MATCHED BY 50%!! $20 becomes $30! $50 becomes $75! $5,000 becomes $10,000! Ok, we're not expecting donations that large, but our goal is $2000 (since last year, we raised $1,500).
For 10 years, Bright Prospect has been empowering high potential, low-income students to gain admission, succeed and graduate from four-year colleges and universities by providing a comprehensive counseling and support system throughout their high school and college years.
We serve 7 high schools in Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties, and currently work with over 1400 low-income students between the ages of 16 and 25. When 1 out of 9 low-income students are expected to graduate within 6 years, Bright Prospect maintains a 93% college graduate rate.
Thank you for supporting our students and for supporting college success!
