So Many Youth Need More Than Financial Aid to Succeed; All Out for Change® Fills That Critical Need
Immediate Priority Needs for College Prep Essentials & Success: As college and scholarship application season ramps up, we're raising College Access Funds for our Supplemental Scholarship Fund that helps with essentials like laptops, books, tuition gaps, meals, and transportation to and from college, essentials that tuition and housing scholarships don't include. The College Access Fund also covers 11 and 12th graders' professional development workshops and college prep and counseling workshops. Using laptops we donated they learn to do college and scholarship searches, prepare college applications and essays. Funds also cover transportation to and from the workshops and college application fees.

I am a woman of my words and determination that is able to achieve my big goals.”
