Review for Baton Rouge Youth Coalition Inc, Baton Rouge, LA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Baton Rouge Youth Coalition's mission is to ensure that hard-working teens have the resources they need to pursue their dreams. In a city that is rife with violence, poverty, and failing schools, top tier colleges and elite scholarship programs seem completely out of reach for even our brightest most successful students. What BRYC does is closes the gap between the talents and brilliance of our students and the opportunities and resources that are available to them. As a mentor, I had the privilege of guiding one young woman through the college process and watched her earn admission to Clark University in MA and earn over $35,000 in merit based scholarships, fundamentally altering her life path. I am inspired daily by the work BRYC does to level the playing field for Baton Rouge's students and by the students themselves as they accomplish remarkable things. Most importantly, BRYC brings a much needed hope to the city as Fellows grow empowered to create bold visions for the Baton Rouge they want to see and create the change to take us there.
