Economic stability leads to better health outcomes for individuals and families, and the best predictor of such stability is a college degree. Given that, we have a long history of providing successful college access and success programs for promising low-income, first-generation students with a desire to attend college. Over decades, graduates of our college success programs have earned a college degree at 80% combined (over 6 years) – nearly four times the national average for the same demographic of students.
Our two programs in Worcester include the Bruce Wells Scholars Upward Bound, a federally funded TRIO program in partnership with Clark University and the Worcester Public Schools, and the Dynamo John S. Laws Academy, a privately funded college success and leadership program.
