Meet the 17 students on the home stretch.

These students are so close to high school graduation, but they face incredible odds to get there. Your monthly gift of $30 or $60 will help pay for one of these student’s tuition and school supplies as well as youth groups that provide academic and social support. Your gift will also provide the student and his or her family with access to our health care, housing, and family development programs, which address the host of issues that might cause a teenager to drop out. Perhaps most important, you can be a powerful motivator for a student who is so close to graduation.
