How you're making a difference in our students' li
By Ben Clark - Executive Director
It’s been an exceptional year at Enroot. When I think back across 2018 I’m struck by the incredible accomplishments of our students and I can’t help but be filled with hope. From 100% of seniors graduating high school, to record scholarship awards, and impressive academic achievements, Enroot students once again taught the adults around them constant lessons in courage and perseverance.
It's been a year of significant growth for Enroot, expanding the number of students we serve by over 50%, to 175 this year. For years we have wanted to support our students beyond high school. This fall we launched our College Success program and we’re thrilled to be supporting 28 Enroot high school graduates during their crucial first two years of college - all of them first-generation students.
The Enroot team pours its heart and soul into this work every day, always putting students first. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, but we know there are many more students in the region without this kind of support. That’s why we’re working hard to prepare the launch of our third Enroot site next year. This expansion to serve more students is only possible with your generous support.
Recent events have brought a unique sense or urgency to Enroot’s work. This is a moment when the network of support around our immigrant students is needed most. We are committed to affirming the value our immigrant students and their families bring to the community. We simply could not undertake this work without the support and generosity of individuals like you. Thank you for joining the movement to advance equity for the newest members of our community.
