Let’s Get Ready is proud to be highlighted in the most recent Hechinger Report for our College Success Program. We know that the innovative work being done through our College Success Program will help decrease inequality in education and offer more opportunities for students from low-income backgrounds and first-generation-to-college students to succeed in graduating college and beyond.
Joshua Steckel, Let’s Get Ready Board Member, is quoted in the article stating, “We say that education will lead to mobility, but, in fact, the higher-ed system is structured in such a way that makes it very difficult for first-generation students to move up.”
Let’s Get Ready is providing help to thousands of students every year. Read the full Hechinger Report here: Nonprofits step in to help students that colleges allow to ‘slip through the cracks’.
