If you are a student graduating in 2019 from a participating high school, we can help you succeed in college and beyond, with tuition assistance and success coaching. Anyone can complete college with the right support. An associate degree, certificate, or bachelor’s degree is within your reach!

Our Goal is 60x30TX: 60 percent of Texans aged 25 to 34 with a college degree by 2030.

And we want to ensure it’s accomplished with equity in Dallas County; hard work and perseverance, not race and economic status, should determine success in school and life.
