Each year, thousands of out-of-school and off track youth reconnect with their education through a Gateway to College program. These young people seize the opportunity offered to them and exceed what they once thought was possible for themselves.
When our 16 to 24 year olds are out of school and out of work, the costs of their nonparticipation are substantial. They lack the ability to support themselves and their families, and they have an increased reliance on public benefits. Through Gateway to College, these young people have a second chance.
Gateway to College National Network helps communities build pathways for disconnected youth to a high school diploma and a meaningful college credential. We launch programs, build collaborative partnerships, and provide coaching, training, and support to our programs. For us to continue our success, we need your support.
Your gift helps us open new doors. For every $100 of private philanthropic dollars we invest, we are able to leverage $1,100 in public dollars.
Please consider a gift on Giving Tuesday, and help Gateway to College National Network put another young person on a pathway to a postsecondary credential and a lifetime of success. We cannot do this work without you. Thank you for your support.
