What We Do
First Gen Success is a 501 (c)(3) organization with a mission to close the gender disparity gap by inspiring young girls (junior and senior level of high school) who will be the first in their family to graduate from a degree program. We strive to develop the full potential of each scholar through additional resources and curriculum; and create a rewarding environment in which they enter college with the ability to successfully handle the challenges of college life. To advance this mission, we offer academic support with comprehensive college counseling, test preparation, study skills, leadership training, access to career professionals, and ongoing support through successful college graduation.
