Higher Edge has a clearly defined mission – To support first generation students to AND through college. And in the 10 years since the organization was founded; the mission has been met.
In total; Higher Edge has guided 249 students to college – 85 of which have been supported through to their college graduation and 167 who are currently enrolled at a college/university. In 2021 alone, 17 young adults earned college degrees and another 29 will be starting their first year of college in the fall.
So if you share in our belief that all young people should have an equal opportunity to pursue their educational goals and dreams, please invest in our work by supporting our upcoming fundraising event. [All proceeds raised will go directly towards programming.]
The 1st Annual Golf Tournament, celebrating Higher Edge’s 10 year anniversary, will be held on Monday, October 25, 2021 at Great Neck Country Club in Waterford, CT.
