THE STORY:

It is shocking that first-generation college students drop out at 5 times the rate of their peer group - only 11% graduate (Pell Institute, 2011). 

Eighty-five percent are from low-income families, and these students are more likely to begin their college experience at a community college.

For students without professional role models or family legacies, even those fortunate enough to progress through college face the difficult challenges of selecting, securing, and succeeding in summer internships that lead to full time jobs on the path to promising careers. 

New York Needs You is a non-profit focused on helping first-generation college students by providing mentoring and career development.  As a Mentor Coach, I have had the honor to work with Jerry Chan as he pursues his dream of a career in finance.

Please help me to raise money for this phenomenal organization.
