PATHWAYS TO COLLEGE—CHANGING YOUNG LIVES THROUGH EDUCATION

Keisha never thought she would be able to make her dreams come true and go to law school. But that was before a friend like you made it possible for her to participate in Pathways to College!

Pathways to College is a nonprofit after-school program that reaches students in school districts with limited resources. Since our founding in 2003, we’ve helped more than 4,500 students in under-resourced communities gain admission to colleges and universities nationwide.

Pathways to College invests multiple hours each week to help build students’ confidence and skills, while also enriching their teachers and schools. The results are inspiring and are being proven over and over again in cities and towns across the United States—

  • 100% GRADUATES ADMITTED TO COLLEGE *
  • 90% PATHWAYS GRADUATES COLLEGE MATRICULATION RATE *
  • 4,500+ PATHWAYS SCHOLARS (TO DATE)

Your support is needed now to increase the number of students we reach in underserved communities with this remarkably successful strategy that helps them achieve the educational and lifetime success our country urgently needs. Only funding stands in the way of opening more doors for thousands of students! It takes just $1,200 a year to put a student on the pathway to college and a lifetime of success.

  • Thanks to a Matching Challenge from the Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation, your gift today will be matched up to $2 million—dollar for dollar!

With adequate funding, we could reach out to another 1,000 students today!
