My grandparents only made it to 7th grade, and my parents made it through 9th grade. I am one of the first college graduates in my family and that is a really big deal because of my experience in foster care and my family’s history of mental health struggles. RTS’s support helped me graduate and really start taking my career seriously. It’s given me the courage to continue moving forward.
Unlock Opportunities for Foster Youth and First-Gen Students
Since 2016, the Los Angeles community has rallied around Ready To Succeed’s foster youth and first-generation college students, steadily growing the number of enrolled students and alumni who’ve completed the program to 374.
With more foster youth and first-gen students wanting to join Ready To Succeed than ever before, and 210 enrolled in the career readiness program in 2022, RTS needs your help to raise $100,000. Your generosity will make it possible to help current and future foster youth and first-gen students to graduate college, launch successful careers, and reach their full potential.
