As a young boy, I quickly learned the benefits of relying on a network of family, friends, teachers, and others for mentoring and opportunities. This network opened many doors. I later realized that there were many others who simply did not have the foundational support essential to tapping into the ‘hidden’ talents and resources. Fortunately, EST holds the key to unlocking these talents through its expansive, multi-faceted, and highly personalized support system for thousands of richly deserving yet previously unsupported young men and women. My partner (an HBCU graduate) and I are exceptionally proud to be longtime EST donors.

Say Yes to Create College Access

Educating Students Together (EST) identifies qualifying low-income BIPOC students and provides no-cost tools and services starting in their junior year of high school. Each year they can help roughly 50 low-income youth and 20 foster youth, out of 200 deserving applicants, to pursue and achieve their college education dreams.

But with your donation, they aim to grow and expand their program to include 100 students in each of the four grades of high school, because the earlier they can begin working with high school students, the more effective and successful they can be in helping guide them on their path to their dream college and beyond.

Every dollar, up to $100,000, will be matched by the Valero Energy Foundation, Aaron and Diana Judovits, and Microsoft.
