Organization Information

Mission Statement

The Posse Foundation is a college access and youth leadership development program that identifies, recruits, and trains students leaders from public high schools and sends them in groups called Posses to some of the top colleges and universities in the country.

Description

Posse started because of one student who said he never would have dropped out of college if he had his "posse" with him. That simple idea, of sending a group of students together to college so they could "back each other up" became the impetus for a program that today has sent hundreds of students to top colleges and universities throughout the United States. Posse Scholars have been awarded over $334 million in scholarships from Posse partner colleges and universities and are persisting and graduating at a rate of 90%--far higher than the national average.
