THE STORY:

They're motivated, they're academic achievers, and they're parents. Endicott College is deeply concerned about young men and women who become single parents before they have an opportunity to attend college and complete their education.

In an effort to make a difference in the lives of these young men and women, Endicott has developed Keys to Degrees: Educating Two Generations Together, a program that puts a baccalaureate degree within reach for your single parents who seek a better life for themselves and for their children. This comprehensive program brings educational opportunity to a largely under-served population.

Keys to Degrees was founded at Endicott College to address a national problem - lack of educational and vocational opportunities for young single parents - one family at a time. The increasing number of children living with single parents has greatly affected family structure and the economic security of children in the United States over the past twenty years.

This year, for the first time ever, Endicott has been awarded three entries into the 2013 Boston Marathon through the John Hancock Boston Marathon Non-Profit Program. With these three entries, Endicott College's ultimate goal is to raise $15,000 towards scholarships for the Keys to Degrees Program.

Running the Boston Marathon has always been on my "bucket list", so when I heard about the opportunity to participate, I knew I had to be a part of it.  My brother and I were very young when my mother went back to college to further her education and I remember how hard it was for her to balance work, school and motherhood.  I am proud to work for an institution that recognizes how difficult this can be.  Knowing that I will be able to make a difference in a young family's life (no matter how small!) is truly an honor.

With your support, we can make the power of education for these young men and women a reality - and transform lives along the way!
