Bridging Futures: High School to College to Corporate - Transforming Lives with Strategic Corporate Sponsorship
OUR MISSION IS YOUR MISSION
Uprooted Academy is a non-profit committed to empowering all students, irrespective of financial or social backgrounds, to navigate the college application process triumphantly. We envision a future workforce that is enriched by individuals wellversed in the college journey and equipped with clarity on potential careers and opportunities. We prepare first-generation, low-income students for seamless transitions into corporations, shaping influential futures, and fostering diversity within organizations.
WHO WE SERVE:
High school students who will be first-generation college students and their families who are low-income and/or BIPOC
Here is the national data on first-generation, low-income students:
Will start a college application and never complete it.
Will never step foot on a college campus or attend a traditional fair before applying to college
Will apply to college undecided which means they are 3x more likely to drop out of college
Will earn the top scholarships. 90% of scholarships go to middle to upper-class students due to unawareness.
LONG TERM STUDENT/CORPORATE IMPACT
These challenges result in reduced career clarity, lower earning potential, increased student loan debt, limited professional networks, and constrained opportunities for growth and advancement in the workforce. The reality is, first-generation, low-income students are not motivated to attend college or join the workforce which is showcased in a 22% drop in enrollment since 2019. This impacts lifetime earnings through limited access to opportunities and negatively affects a company's ability to recruit a skilled and diverse workforce, limiting talent pool, innovation, and overall organizational success in a competitive market.
