Review for Foundation For Students Rising Above, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Students Rising Above is an outstanding organization that provides underprivileged and motivated high school juniors the valuable opportunity to apply for and attend college. The SRA model provides a solid and consistent support system – financial, mentor and advisor relationships, healthcare coordination, workshops – without which, matriculating into college is mostly a dream. Equally fantastic, is the graduation success rate (90%) for these students compared to the national average. There are many heartwarming and inspiring success stories of SRA participants who “rise above”, finish college and deservingly go on to productive lives. Behind all this is an amazingly dedicated, involved and giving staff that make this organization such a success and pleasure to be associated with.
