THE STORY:

COLLEGE BOUND DORCHESTER wrote -

Here are some ways you can make a difference in the lives of our students.

$50 provides a monthly T Pass for a student
$75 provides instructional materials for a College Connections student
$125 provides one HiSET exam
$300 provides a student with a monthly stipend 
$500 provides meals for one child for a year

--------------------------------------------------------------------

​How different do you think your life would be if no one believed in your potential or you were written-off for making a mistake? At College Bound, we believe that even the most disengaged young people can set college as a goal and expectation. 

Many of our students, like Paul who spent five years in prison, join us feeling that the pull of the streets is stronger than their belief in something better. It would be so easy for us both to give up because the cyclical barriers of poverty and violence seem too great.

But then, Paul wouldn’t be working to pass the HiSET exam so that he can go to college and become a social worker — setting a new path for himself and his daughter. Soon Paul will join the more than 100 College Bound students enrolled in college and defying the odds. It is because of these students and their successes that we ask you to make a donation today.

When we believe in their potential, they realize it. When we don’t give up, they achieve.

Despite the road they have taken thus far, we cannot afford to overlook any young person if we want our communities and cities to thrive. A college education provides the skills and opportunities which offer a path out of disruption. This is our mission and it’s working. Will you join us?
