Economic stability leads to better health outcomes for individuals and families, and the best predictor of such stability is a college degree. Given that, we have a long history of providing successful college access and success programs for low-income, first-generation college-attending young people. Programs that prove that when given positive opportunities our youth will make the most of them. Over the past few decades graduates of our college success programs earn a college degree at 80% combined (over 6 years), nearly four times the national average for the same demographic!
Currently, we operate two well-known programs in the Worcester area: the Bruce Wells Scholars Upward Bound, a federally funded TRiO program in partnership with Clark University, and the Dynamy Youth Academy, a privately funded college success and leadership program.
