One Goal National

Program Description

Our Mission & Vision Nationally, only eight percent of ninth graders in low-income communities are expected to graduate from college by age 25. These numbers stand in stark contrast to rates for students in America who grow up in the top income quartile: 82 percent of these ninth graders are expected to graduate from college. OneGoal is a rapidly expanding movement dedicated to systemically changing this reality in Chicago, Houston and beyond. As the nation's only teacher-led college persistence organization, we identify, train and support our nation's most effective teachers to lead underperforming high school students to reach their full potential and graduate from college. OneGoal Leadership Principles There are five leadership principles that guide our work in classrooms. These leadership principles include ambition, integrity, professionalism, resilience and resourcefulness. OneGoal Core Values There are five core values that guide our work as a team. We are mission-driven and disciplined in thought and action. We also operate in relentless pursuit of excellence, with an eye on collective responsibility and sustainable success. Please review our Core Values to learn more.
