More info about First Graduate:
We want San Francisco to be the example of what it can mean for every family in a community to have a college-going tradition. We believe that a college degree is the best way to:
-break the cycle of poverty within families
-build a productive, educated workforce
-foster an engaged and active citizenry
Toward this end, First Graduate aspires to become the premier college access and success program in the Bay Area, and a vital partner in effective local, state, and national efforts to ensure that a college education is the first option for all students.
We equip first-generation students with the tools, resources, opportunities and networks necessary to be successful in college and beyond.
We make a 10-year commitment to each student, starting the summer after sixth grade through college graduation.
Our students receive year-round academic instruction, tutoring and support; high school and college counseling; mentoring; family engagement activities; career exploration activities; and access to college scholarships.
To-date, 100 percent of our high school seniors have graduated.
