Bright Prospect offers different forums for educated professionals to give back to students in the program. We welcome you to meet with a group of our high school and college students to share your story, answer questions about your industry and provide insight and perspective into the workplace. Volunteers can also assist on projects such as mentoring, reviewing personal insight questions for high school juniors, and helping at one of our programming events.

How you helpBy giving your time you help bridge the educational gap by providing our students with the counseling, skills, and mentorship needed to succeed in college and beyond.
About usA primary contributing factor to persistent poverty in low-income neighborhoods is low educational attainment. Nationwide, only a small fraction of low-income students start college, and of those who do, only 9% will graduate within six years. Helping low-income students to get into college is necessary, but it is insufficient for them to achieve a college degree. A Pell Institute study reveals that in America, only 1 in 9 low-income students who start college actually graduate within six years. That’s why the Bright Prospect program not only provides the assistance students need to get accepted to college but also (a) focuses on developing their attitudes, commitment and skills, and (b) continues ongoing support until our students graduate from college. Today, more than 2,500 Bright Prospect students receive college readiness programming, one-on-one coaching, application assistance, and ongoing mentorship beginning in ninth grade through college graduation.
