Description

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – EIN 810615887  studentsrisingabove.org

The facts are clear: college determines career paths and life skills. But not everyone shares the same opportunity.
Only 10% of youth from low-income families hold a bachelor’s degree by age 25, compared to 77% of middle to higher income youth. Students Rising Above (SRA) is determined to change the odds. We understand the rewards and obstacles students face in defying expectations, and how their success can lift up entire communities. Since 1998, we’ve helped craft, nurture, and navigate college experiences that lead to meaningful careers. We value character over GPA, take pride in personal commitment, and measure success with proven results.

Enlisting comprehensive support, personal relationships, and career guidance, we’ve become the most successful college completion program in the nation. Join us as we redefine what’s possible for the next generation.

Our Mission
The Students Rising Above (SRA) community is dedicated to impacting the future through the cultivation of extraordinary youth. SRA invests in low-income, first generation college students who have demonstrated a deep commitment to education and strength of character in overcoming tremendous odds of poverty, homelessness and neglect. We help each student to realize his or her potential by guiding and supporting the student through college graduation, and into the workforce. Our graduates are breaking the cycle of poverty within their own families, serving their communities, providing a new generation of employees and leaders from diverse backgrounds, and accelerating positive change.
