Today nearly 70% of high school graduates take some kind of college courses, and a full 40% of young adults are currently enrolled. They want to achieve the American Dream, and college is their best hope of it: adults with a bachelor’s degree have higher median incomes and lower unemployment rates than their less educated peers. A college diploma has a significant impact on a person’s lifelong earnings potential. In 2010, the median earnings for young adults with bachelor's degree were $45,000. Median earnings for those with an associate’s degree were $37,000. Those with only a high school diploma had median earnings of $29,900, which dropped to $21,000 for those who didn’t graduate from high school.
In less than two years, we have on-boarded teens that live in the Washington DC metropolitan area. Girls Prep has tested and demonstrated the importance of mentorship in supporting educational outcomes, life-skills, providing opportunities for exposure and advancement into college.
We aim to be regarded as one of the leading innovative and collaborative mentoring organizations in the Washington DC Metropolitan area. As we prepare for the expansion of our programs, we plan to reach a larger audience of youth and grow our membership to serve over 100 young adult women by 2020.
