Donated towards $550.00 Goal
April 16, 2018
We are raising funds to provide test prep materials for 20 low-income college-bound high school students from Norwalk, CT!
Every summer, HELP, Inc. enrolls 20 students into our College Edge Program for free. Through the program, students learn about the college admission process, financial aid, as well as prepare for the SAT.
Students who grow up in low-income households are 80% less likely to become low-income themselves if they graduate from college. Colleges with higher graduation rates require higher SAT scores for admission.
Specifically, your gift will help purchase:
- SAT Test Prep Book (20 x $20 = 400)
- Print Copies of Practice Tests (20 x $7.50 = 150)
100% of our graduates go to college, 100% of our graduates recommend our program, and 100% of our graduates felt prepared for the college application process. Our graduates have gone on to the following colleges (and the list grows every year):
- American International College
- Central CT State Univ.
- Eastern CT State Univ.
- Hampton Univ.
- Massachusetts College of Art & Design,
- Morris College,
- Norfolk State Univ
- Norwalk Community College
- Quinnipiac Univ.
- Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
- Southern CT State Univ.
- of Central Florida
- Western CT State Univ.
Cost to provide SAT test prep materials to low-income, college-bound students in Norwalk, CT: $550
