America Needs You 2019 Annual Benefit Dinner
October 16 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
We will highlight the incredible ambition of our students and raise critical funds to support the Fellows Program. Our cocktail reception will begin at 6:30PM and dinner and presentations will begin at 7:30PM.
Your support of this event provides ambitious first-generation college students with a structured career development curriculum, one-on-one mentorship from talented young professionals and access to extensive professional networks. Through your support of the Fellows Program, students maintain enrollment in school and make the critical connection between college and careers.
At a time when only 11% of low-income, first-generation college students graduate from college, your generosity enables students to achieve outstanding results:
• 92% of students complete internships.
• 94% of program alumni graduate from college within six years of enrollment.
• 92% of graduates secure full-time employment or enroll in full-time graduate programs within six months of earning their degrees.
