From College Access to College Success

We are about to embark on a new journey: supporting Enroot students for two additional years after high school to ensure all of our students have the resources to transition to post-secondary education, graduate from a 2 or 4 year college, and grow in a meaningful career. English Language Learners have the lowest college completion rate compared to any other student group, and we believe that it is essential to not just invest in college access in high school, but in our students' continued success upon high school graduation.

With are grateful to the generous support from the Lafferty Family Foundation and The Philanthropy Connection, for making this possible. The program will include mentoring, 1:1 coaching, and support navigating the higher education system.  We are thrilled to announce Enroot AmeriCorps Massachusetts Promise Fellow, Georgia Lederman, will be leading this effort as our Manager of College Success and Alumni Engagement! 

College Success programming is essential in expanding opportunities for traditionally marginalized individuals and communities and Enroot is uniquely positioned to do this work alongside our students. I could not be more excited to manage Enroot’s College Success Program, which will include academic, career,  financial and social-emotional coaching, ultimately leading to an increase in the number of first-generation immigrants who graduate from college and enter the workforce ready to succeed.
