American Student Assistance
In support of their mission to help students successfully navigate education-to-career pathways, American Student Assistance provides relevant research and insights across a range of topics. These include information on exploring middle and high school career and internship opportunities; data on work-based learning policies in schools across the country; support for parents of recent high school graduates; and more.
College admissions can be difficult to navigate, but Bottom Line is committed to providing mentorship services to support and improve students’ experiences during the application process and beyond. In addition to individual mentorship, they also offer high school and college resources, including information on FAFSA, scholarships, academic and employment resources, and more.
In service of their work championing educational equity, Enlearn provides a platform—developed based on extensive, leading research—to deliver personalized learning to students from traditionally under-resourced communities. To ensure those they serve have access to all relevant resources and information, Enlearn also makes available the key studies and research that power their platform.
Teach for America
Teach for America is committed to supporting their community during their time serving in the Teach for America program and beyond. To this end, Teach for America offers alumni opportunities, events, resources, and leadership development to keep alumni engaged and connected, including an alumni directory, networking opportunities, lists of graduate school and employer partners, and more.
Working closely with students from historically under-resourced communities, Beyond12 is determined to improve access to higher education and increase college completion rates.
