We will distribute information through our blog, directly from our office and through our online networks.
Our team consists of all college graduates and those who have master's and higher degrees. We have been through the challenges of gaining admission to college and then succeeding in the rigorous academic environment. Our outreach plan includes providing services and counseling to students seeking admission, those who need to finance their education, and students struggling to keep up.Donate
