Beyond 12

"A college degree is vital to a student’s chances of succeeding in their career and life -- I am excited to join Beyond 12’s important efforts to support students on that journey.”

About Beyond 12

Beyond 12 is a national technology-based nonprofit that was launched in 2010 to dramatically increase the number of students from under-resourced communities who graduate from college and who translate their degrees into meaningful employment and choice-filled lives. In partnership with high schools and colleges, our mobile college success platform and our virtual coaches provide students with the academic, social, and emotional support they need to succeed in higher education and beyond. We envision a world in which a student’s race, zip code, and parent’s level of education will no longer predict their college graduation outcomes or their future success.
