Every year, thousands of students enter college as first-time freshmen and, for many, it's more than just a once-in-a-lifetime moment for them—it's also a monumental landmark for their family, especially for those who are first in their family to attend college.
First Graduate is a San Francisco-based program specially created to support these first generation college-bound students. The program starts in sixth grade and creates a support network for students over the course of ten or more years as they work to successfully graduate college. Executive Director Tom Ahn believes an educated citizenry benefits us all, making it in everyone's best interest to ensure all kids are receiving a solid educational foundation for lifelong success.
Watch how First Graduate supports students as they journey from middle school to college and beyond.
