AWU College Programs VISTA Member

Make a difference helping low-Income college students succeed! The mission of the ALL WAYS UP Foundation (AWU), www.allwaysup.org, is to help first-generation and low-income youth get into AND through college. By providing scholarships, support for other non-profit organizations and an annual leadership summit, we are working to bridge the gap between ambition and opportunity to break the generational cycle of poverty. The goals of the multi-site project are to increase 1) the number of low-income youth of color who go to and graduate from college and 2) the number of graduates who are financially literate and have the skills required to pursue meaningful employment and/or a career.
