“Everyone has a different obstacle but that does not mean that they do not have the right to succeed. An obstacle is nothing but a road block and a person must learn how to create a detour around it.”

– Yesenya, 2013 College Summit Peer Leader of the Year

Students like Yesenya grow up in low-income communities where high school students aren’t expected to go to college. These students face all kinds of obstacles to a brighter future.

College Summit is providing schools in low-income communities with innovative tools needed to help these young people navigate the road to college and career success.

How your donation to a student like Yesenya helps:

  1. With a four-year degree, Yesenya stands to earn, on average, $1 million more in her lifetime than her peers who only achieve a high school diploma.
  2. As a college graduate, Yesenya will stay healthier, contribute more to the U.S. economy, vote, and volunteer more.
  3. For every 10% increase in a region’s college attainment level, wages increase at every level by 8%.

Donating to College Summit ensures students like Yesenya are equipped to create detours around whatever roadblocks they might encounter. You can create real change in America’s neediest communities.
