Students Rising Above invests in low-income, first-generation college students who have demonstrated a deep commitment to education and strength of character while overcoming tremendous odds of poverty, homelessness, and neglect. We help students to realize their potential by guiding and supporting them from high school, through college graduation, and into the workforce. Our graduates are breaking the cycle of poverty within their own families, serving their communities, providing a new generation of employees and leaders from diverse backgrounds, and accelerating positive change. The SRA Community is dedicated to impacting the future through the cultivation of extraordinary youth.
How do you break the cycle of poverty and help create new opportunities for young people who face overcome tremendous obstacles? At SRA, we do it by helping our students fulfill their dream of going to college and creating a better life for themselves and their family.
