“This year’s Fellow was able to engage a new demographic of youth. The teens developed a very special bond with our Fellow, because they shared similar experiences due to their socioeconomic status, ethnicity and neighborhood.

"Structured support for college access would not be possible without the focused efforts of our Fellow and has made a tremendous impact on our youth!"-2016-2017 Host Site Supervisor
