First Graduate

Our mission is to help students become the first in their families to graduate from college. Tax ID 94-3381171


Thanks to our donors and volunteers like you, we equip first-generation students with the tools, resources, opportunities and networks necessary to be successful in college and beyond.    

Students are with us for 10 years, starting the summer after sixth grade through college graduation. Each student receives 300 hours per year of academic instruction, tutoring and support; high school and college counseling; mentoring; family engagement activities; career exploration activities; and access to college scholarships. 

100% of our high school seniors have graduated from high school and enrolled in college. First Graduate college students are currently attending schools across the nation such as Barnard College, Harvard, Middlebury College, The University of San Francisco, Tufts University, University of California, Los Angeles and more. 

Our work creates a ripple effect that transforms families, neighborhoods, communities and San Francisco.
