Only 9% of children from low-income families will earn a college degree, but among Horizons for Youth program participants, the rate is 86%. We work with the same profile of kids, from the same neighborhoods, facing the same socioeconomic challenges, with the same array of learning abilities. And yet, Horizons for Youth students achieve a nearly 10-fold increase in college persistence.
