Program Description

First Generation College Bound (FGCB) is a grassroots organization based in Prince George's County, Maryland, whose mission is to increase the participation of low- and moderate-income youth in higher education, particularly those whose parents do not have a bachelor's degree. FGCB accomplishes this through an education-community support system that bridges the resources of the home, church, school and community. Emphasis is placed on early intervention through academic support, early identification of education and career goals, and sponsorship of individualized and personalized college access activities.
