College Possible

We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to pursue a college degree and prosperous future.

“I did not believe I was
worthy of going
to college before this


  • 98% of College Possible students are admitted to college
  • A College Possible student is 2x more likely to go to a four year institution, 5x more likely to graduate… making their students 10x more likely to earn a degree
  • College Possible students score 22% higher on the ACT

With the help provided by College Possible, college becomes a reality for bright, eager disadvantaged
students. The majority of College Possible candidates are the first in their household to attend college.
Coaches guide high school students through all of the key aspects of preparing for college during
after-school sessions for two hours twice a week. Over the course of their junior and senior years, students
complete 320 hours of curriculum in a supportive group of college-bound peers.

During their time with College Possible, students prepare extensively for the ACT/SAT exam, complete
college applications as well as apply for financial aid and scholarships. Students receive further guidance as
they transition to college. Coaches help students find and connect with existing resources available on their
campus to help them prepare for their challenges ahead.

See how your support transforms students and communities across the country, helping to build better
futures for all!

Career Gear , a suit - a second chance

Career Gear provides professional clothing, mentoring and life-skills to help men in poverty become stronger contributors to their families and communities.

In 14 years of existence, Career Gear is proud to have helped over


men eagerly seeking employment.

“The Professional Development Series workshops provide valuable information in a male-friendly atmosphere, which fosters openness in the discussions. I feel comfortable expressing my concerns, point of view and life experiences in the groups. The clothing has been a blessing. Presentation is key for the industry I am in and having a decent suit for first impressions bolsters my chances for success.”

Career Gear is a non-profit organization that builds strong families and communities by empowering
disadvantaged men to overcome barriers and achieve self-sufficiency. They promote the economic
independence of disadvantaged men by providing financial literacy training, a network of support, professional
attire, career development tools, job-readiness and essential life-skills training that help men enter the
workforce, stay employed and become role models and mentors to their family and community.
