College Initiative

In 2008, our first college student entered Alabama State University, 1 year after being (mis)informed that he would be unable to attend a 4-year college. His response, and ours, laid the foundation for what would become the Live In Peace College Initiative. Since that time, we have sent over 100 East Palo Alto students to colleges around the country. Our students receive college prep support as well as ongoing academic, financial, and social-emotional support throughout their college journey. The flexible nature of our program also allows us to re-engage and re-enroll students who may have stepped off their college path for one reason or another. The result so far is a college graduation rate 6x higher than the national average for students who are considered "low-income" and are the first in their families to go to college.
