Since 1981, we've helped more than 17,000 students earn a college degree. Our movement is growing, transforming lives and increasing its scale and impact. Higher educational attainment earning a two- or four-year college degree has never been more critical to the success of our citizens, our community, and our country. Nearly 60% of newly created jobs require some level of post-high school education. Over the last three decades, we've built one of the most effective, efficient, innovative college access organizations in the country. In an independent evaluation of 10,000 Degrees, the report found that the organization had a serious impact on students confidence, skill, motivation to pursue higher education and preparedness for college.
