About this organization






First Graduate’s mission of helping students become first generation college graduates seeks to level the playing field for students who are immigrants or children of immigrants, who come from challenging economic circumstances, and who are otherwise disadvantaged in the dominant culture. We provide them with the long-term support that their more well-off peers receive so that they can be competitive high school and college candidates. This investment in their education and exposure to career options sets them on a path to build careers, not just jobs. Education is a right, not a privilege; we coach students from the summer after 6th grade through college graduation (a 10+ year journey) to help them attain their degrees and thereby help their families move out of poverty in one generation.


General Program: The overarching program that includes the Middle School, High School, and College program accomplishments. Middle School Program- we recruit students in 6th grade and provide them with academic tutoring, career exposure, and other support needed to enable them to transition to high school and begin their path towards becoming first generation college graduates. High School Program- we continue helping first generation students become competitive college candidates with tutoring, social and emotional support, career exposure, networking, summer internships, applying to high schools, SAT and ACT test preparation, college visits, college applications, scholarship applications, parent support during the process, financial aid applications, filing FAFSA,selecting college, etc. College Program- we ensure that students enroll in college, complete all financial aid and scholarship forms, coach and guide them throughout their college years, help them find scholarships and internships, and graduate within six years of enrolling in college.
