GIVE SOMETHING BACK FOUNDATION
Providing college scholarships and mentoring to students who have faced economic hardship and other adversities such as foster care or the incarceration of a parent.
GIVE BACK APPROACH
Give Something Back works with high school administrators and community leaders to select ninth graders who show academic promise and whose family income qualifies them to receive a Federal Pell Grant. The program helps students who may not have considered college as an achievable option receive the guidance needed to complete a college degree in four years, debt free.
Give Something Back pairs selected students with trained adult mentors who support the students through the challenges of high school years at home and in the classroom, preparing them for the rigors of a four-year college education. Mentors help students navigate the process of college admissions. Give Something Back provides its high school graduates with a scholarship for tuition and room & board at one of its partner universities and colleges.
