Resources For Educators
We’re experts at creating student-friendly, research-based, culturally resonant college and early career content, and sharing it via our open-access, mobile-friendly website, text, social media, and video. We are a national, youth-serving nonprofit that prioritizes support for Black, Brown, first-gen, immigrant, and youth from low-income families to access and succeed in their postsecondary efforts after high school, and in their first job.
We know educators like you often have huge caseloads and important competing priorities, and students - especially those who are first gen - rely on you for support in navigating their next steps for college and first jobs. Let us help you share college and career resources - and build lessons-by delivering compelling short-form videos and articles right to your inbox - in concise, shareable, timely messages!
