Our mission is to equip students with the attitude, skills and experience to graduate from college and we are working towards a vision of transforming the neighborhoods of Dorchester through education. We serve more than 900 students every year from ages 3 months to 27.
Team WE ARE COLLEGE BOUND is raising funds to help students get into, and graduate from, college. The specific program that these funds will support is College Connections. College Connections currently serves 300 students, ages 14 to 27, through three focused tracks: traditional high school youth who are still enrolled in school but are at risk of dropping out; students who have dropped out of high school and seek to attain their GED and prepare for college; and students who face significant barriers to educational success due to being English Language Learners. College Connections’ students participate in targeted academic assistance and mentoring groups to ensure that they attain both the education and social-emotional skills necessary to succeed in school through college graduation.
Thank you for your support!
