The Impact of the Education Care Packages
Since 2015, we have given over 100 care packages to students transitioning to college, trade school or a gap year program. 72.9% of recipients have an average household income of less than $45,000 per year. In addition to the receiving the care packages student recipients participate in a 2-day Higher Education Preparation Series that truly help students prepare for the transition into new learning and living environments.
Through the series students gain access to students actively engaged in higher education programs, financial advisors, career coaches, financial aid counselors and more. Engagement with these professionals allow the students to their new life more informed and with a network of people who are invested in their happiness and success. 98% of the students who received a C.A.R.E. packages are enrolled in college.
