Program Description

All across Texas, a growing number of high school students lack adequate access to information about going to college. Many of them don't believe they can succeed in college or have never considered college a possibility. Without exposure, information, and encouragement, many students never pursue college at all.

Advise TX is bridging this gap. We place exceptional recent college graduates from all fields of study on high school campuses as near-peer college advisers to lead low-income and first-generation students to college.
