How you helpAmerica Needs You (ANY) engages young professionals as mentors for first-generation college students.
About usToday, only 21% of low-income, first-generation college students complete four-year college degrees. College isn’t enough. 50% of hiring managers reported that even after finishing a four-year degree, recent college graduates are not “job ready”. Since 2009, ANY has been improving college completion and employment rates for first-generation college students. The agency was founded on the belief that socio-economic status should not be a barrier to college persistence and career success. While there are a multitude of college access programs for high school seniors and job assistance programs for low-wage earners, there are few programs that ensure first-generation students stay in school and build the skills necessary to prepare for long-term careers.
