"Success Boston is proud to be helping students follow their dream of a college education without gaming the system.
"We are proud to be doing it the hard way, the honest way. And we are exceedingly proud that it is working."
Together, the Boston Foundation, the Boston Public Schools (BPS), the City of Boston, 37 area institutions of higher education and local nonprofit partners are working to double the college completion rate for students from the BPS. To date, over 6,000 students have participated in Success Boston coaching. They are more likely than their peers to persist and graduate from postsecondary education.
Join us for the release of a new research report on the labor market experiences of recent college graduates from the Boston Public Schools. The report examines how well graduates of local four-year colleges and universities are connecting to internships and landing “that good first job” after graduation.
Community colleges in Massachusetts educate more students than the rest of the state's public higher education system combined. Yet, their students are frequently overlooked for internships, which can open the door to successful careers. Please join the Boston Foundation and Bunker Hill Community College for a conversation about the assets, competencies, and cultural wealth these students bring to their internships, and the changes in practices employers should implement to support them more equitably and effectively.
