Today’s Problem

National College Resources Foundation narrowing our nation’s long existing racial gaps in income, wealth, workforce, and educational attainment.

Students from low-income communities—the vast majority of whom are students of color—face enormous systemic barriers to complete high school, as well as attend and complete college. As a result, there is a consistent college degree divide that perpetuates inequality in our country. In a time when postsecondary credentials are essential to access economic opportunity, the degree divide is one of our nation’s greatest injustices.

- Just 22% of students in low-income communities graduate from college.
- A college degree impacts earning potential and access to life opportunities.
- We don’t have the talent that we need to fuel a growing workforce and the diverse leadership that we need to thrive as a country.

The NCRF Solution

Our approach to every student is holistic. We meet each student where they are. We understand that each student may have a different need, which makes our approach with each student unique. Underperforming students tends to not only be a matter of academics, but also non cognitive skills along with social-emotional concerns that hinders students from excelling in the classroom. With each student we build a rapport, and together we map a path leading to positive post-secondary pursuits. NCRF has programs that are proven to positively affect the achievement gap and workforce gap, which directly contributes to economic equality.
