“We stay engaged in supporting this program because the more I see the results of what they’re doing, the more clear it is to me that what they offer is unique. The fact is that they’re following the kids all the way to and through college and into a career. This is not a program that ends in their high school years and that’s it. And it isn’t just to get kids into college. They do a lot of focusing on that with scholarships and how to behave and how to get the most out of their college experience, but they follow them to graduation.
That’s their goal. And their success rate of college graduation is about 4 or 5 times that of cohorts who don’t get into the program. It’s pretty phenomenal.” –Jamie Jacob, MGP donor, mentor and board member
