Connect for Good: Helping Students Graduate

November 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for a virtual multi-session immersive volunteer experience where you will get to deep dive into our Bridge to Finish program, learn how to leverage your networks to fundraise, and put together a sweet house warming gift for newly-housed students.

We need people who can commit to two (2) education days during November 2020. Meetings will be held virtually for 1.5 hours in the evening.  Sign up via the button below the description!

 

A bit about Bridge to Finish: Education can be a pathway out of poverty, and community colleges offer an affordable way for low-income students to complete their education. In fact, in King County, more than half of students enrolled are low-income. However, access is only part of the challenge, and fewer than half of the students enrolled will earn their credential due to financial barriers. Bridge to Finish is changing completion rates by providing coordinated services and supports to students today so that they can stay in school, and influencing systems change for a more equitable experience for future generations of students. The largest barriers these college students face are food and housing due to systemic and institutional racism and those affected are predominantly BIPOC students.
