Mission Statement

We are working to ensure equitable access to education for all. We support current and prospective underrepresented college students as they transfer from community college to their four-year institution. We provide support groups for remote learning students. We host sessions for students seeking to create change on their campus.


We started in January 2020 as a non-profit entity focused on supporting students, faculty, and administrators seeking to improve the education system at all levels.

Since then, we’ve helped hundred of students successfully apply, get accepted, and complete college level courses. We collaborated with the Coalition for Immigrant Mental Health as part of their Annual Convening Series. We started the Undocumented Student Relief Fund and (in 2020) awarded $1000 in support to college students who need it the most.

Moving forward, we remain committed to our mission of providing equitable access to high quality education for all students, faculty, and administrators. We are currently working with 12 Future Scholars Fellows as they navigate higher education for the 2021-2022 academic year. We are looking to grow and expand and need new and innovative ideas on how to best serve underrepresented college students as they seek social mobility through higher education.
