Program Description

A richer, stronger, Chicago begins with more college graduates. We believe a young person�s ability to earn a college degree should be driven by their talent, motivation and effort not their income. By pairing low-income students with recent college graduates, the College Possible model will amplify existing efforts to support low-income students.
