Gateway to College Back to School: #OnMySide

Saturday, August 22, 2015
back to school gtcnnGoing back to school in fall can be exciting—seeing friends, taking new classes, starting a new chapter. But, if you’ve been out of the classroom for months and it doesn’t look like you’ll be able to graduate on time, it can be discouraging. You watch as your friends take their next steps to graduation without you. But then your school counselor or a friend tells you about Gateway to College, a program that could give you a second chance at your education. Would you take it?

None of our students come back to class without support and encouragement—at some point we all need a helping hand. Gateway to College provides youth with caring mentors and academic coaches who are on their side throughout their journey to graduation.  This back-to-school season, we want you to share your story. Who helped you succeed in school or take the next step to college? Who encouraged you? Who was on your side?

My teacher, Tammy, was always #OnMySide. She helped me with math when I was struggling and always believed that I could succeed. – Roxanne
