The mission of The College Crusade of Rhode Island is to increase high school graduation, college and career readiness, and college completion for youth in Rhode Island's low-income communities. Our organization supports approximately 4,200 students in middle school, high school, and college each year. We enroll sixth graders who attend public and public charter schools in Providence, Cranston, Pawtucket, Central Falls, Woonsocket, and West Warwick. From the time they join through grade 12, Crusaders experience the steady, nurturing presence of caring adults and participate year-round in programs that focus on academic enrichment, social and personal development, career awareness and exploration, and preparation for college. Crusaders who attend colleges in Rhode Island also benefit from postsecondary transition and success services. In addition, since 2001, we have awarded over $43 million in college scholarships to more than 5,000 RI students.
