College Forward

Austin, Texas



The college coaching program offers personalized, near-peer mentoring and a strong support network to guide motivated students to and through college. This grant enables College Forward to scale its ability to improve college access and success outcomes for hundreds of thousands of students in Texas and beyond.  The grant directly leverages a $1 million Kresge program-related investment (PRI) in CoPilot, a student database that CoFo built on the user-friendly Salesforce platform, that provides nonprofit and education partners with a holistic student information system.
