NHA and Reality Changers are teaming up to help Head Start Alumni realize their college dreams!
Reality Changers, a non-profit organization that provides academic support and life skills development to underprivileged, at-risk youth, will facilitate the partnership as a part of their College Apps Academy Program. As a part of the partnership, Head Start Alumni in Southeastern San Diego, who will be first-generation college students, will be awarded all of the benefits of the Academy’s 13-month program, along with mentorship and community service, and an optional paid internship opportunity.
NHA and Reality Changers are seeking pledges to help fund the program, and provide scholarship opportunities for program participants. With sponsorship levels ranging from $250 to $25,000, there are plenty of opportunities to help raise scholarship funds, give students the chance to apply to colleges, and increase students’ chances of graduating from college.
The project is set to kick-off in April 2016.
