But the odds of getting the chance to go to college are stacked in favor for some and against others.

Let's talk about

Opportunity Gap

If we do nothing, some will be left behind, and so will our state.

Only 3 in 10 students from low-income households will earn a college degree.

Opportunity Gap

California is projected to be 1 million college graduates short by 2025.

We Guide.

Give students the support and advice they need to pursue their college dreams through our Mentor Program. A student somewhere nearby could use your guidance.

10,000 Degrees college students are graduating at rates nearly 3x the national average of their low-income, first-to-college cohort.

What's more, they are each making history. First in their families to graduate college. First to vote. First member of their community to return as a teacher, lawyer, political activist, or 10,000 Degrees advisor!

We Believe.

Help put 10,000 more students from low-income households on the path to a college degree.
Get involved. Change the world.
