Our Mission: College Forward coaches underserved, motivated students to achieve the benefits of higher education and a college degree.
We believe that motivated students who want to go to college can get into and graduate from college. We offer the right support to help them do just that. We pair highly dedicated, near-peer Coaches with students for a full year. Our Coaches build trusted relationships, offer personalized strategies, and leverage a student-centered curriculum. High schoolers take classes that help them apply for, find ways to afford, and gain acceptance to college. College students get dedicated Coaches and on-campus mentors who solve problems, create connections, and support them all the way through graduation. Because we listen so closely to our students, our approach is constantly evolving. We discern exactly what support today’s students need as well as how they need it. We move quickly to address those needs effectively, efficiently — and we always keep it fun.
