Let’s Get Ready
How they are participating
Let’s Get Ready (LGR) is an innovative and highly effective organization that helps low-income and first generation high school students reach their college potential. LGR recruits, trains, and equips college student volunteers (Coaches) who provide participants with intensive SAT tutoring, guidance through the college application process, and mentoring. In a country that boasts the importance and attainability of a quality education, the playing field is far from even. Low-income and first generation students are at a striking disadvantage compared to their middle and upper-income peers; they do not have the same access to advisors, tutors, college preparation programs and materials. Many LGR participants are first-generation college students, who have limited knowledge of the college application process. Some have never even set foot on a college campus before participating in the program.
This holiday season, LGR endeavors to secure $5,000 on #GivingTuesday. Join our movement and help our greatly deserving students.
