THE VISION AND THE VISIONARY

I'm Tiffany Green.

Meet Tiffany Green, the founder of Uprooted Academy™, a national program known for its signature offering, "College Apps: 12 Steps to Finding Your Match©."  As a visionary change agent and college access champion, she manages the organization's vision by partnering with districts and organizations, funding and raising money for scholarships, providing free resources and virtual programming to primarily BIPOC and future first-generation college graduates. Her goal is to alleviate anxiety and confusion around the college application process to help students apply with confidence. 

 

As a first-generation college graduate, Tiffany is a two-time TRIO alum. She attended the University of Connecticut. She then received her graduate degree in counseling psychology from Howard University and became a licensed psychotherapist. Over the next decade, she worked within the high school and collegiate levels, volunteering within local organizations, including Upward Bound, POSSE, and Gear Up, and worked as an instructor with the TRIO Summer Bridge Program, AVID, the University of New Haven, Achievement First's Charter School College Team, and Think Global School.
