Our goal is to inspire low income youth to pursue college by sponsoring them ($35/youth) to experience college at Stanford for a day & more.
Rob's nonprofit, Reach Potential, has found 140 of the 200 sponsors they need ($35/youth) & my goal is to help find 15 more sponsors.
The Dream 4 College Project provides a clear vision to low income fifth and sixth grade students of what their future can look like by letting them experience “College for a Day” at Stanford. The kids will tour the campus, sit in on a lecture, interact with Latino undergrads at Casa Zapata & receive a t-shirt from YOUR alma-mater (if you tell us where you went to college).
In addition to their college fieldtrip, youth will research colleges with a volunteer "coach," and parents will better understand how to support their child's dream for college as Reach Potential co-hosts a parent education program.
