Funded Programs

Building Organizational Capacity: College Possible’s mission focuses on the often-unseen college degree divide, in which race and income predict college access and success, instead of talent or interest. Their program model unites recent college graduates serving as AmeriCorps coaches, with students from low-income backgrounds, many of whom are students of color and will be first-generation college students. College Possible Milwaukee’s short-term goals exemplify the support provided to students and the direct results of that support. Multi-year funding enables College Possible Milwaukee to design and implement programs that support students for more than one year at a time. College Possible advocates for educational and racial equity for the long haul. (Racial Equity Fund)

Career Pathways: Eligible scholars receive at least six years of near-peer coaching support to navigate and overcome the most common barriers to getting into and through college. (Education)
