College persistence for low-income students continues to be a massive obstacle for schools and academic programs across the country. Although college access and enrollment are on the rise for low-income young people, college persistence and graduation remains stagnant.
The Legends program provides intensive outreach to college-aged DREAM alumni through one-on-one meetings with program coordinators as well as group events and workshops to make sure they thrive in and graduate from college before embarking on a successful career.
- College persistence
- College graduation
- Career readiness
“The Summer Bridge program was like the training wheels before riding the bike on my own. It instilled a lot of confidence in me that I did not have at the start. My eyes were opened to the reality of experiencing a possible culture shock when attending a college away from home. I was also able to prepare how to handle those situations. I learned about all the resources and activities on campus and how to utilize them. If it wasn’t for the guidance and support I got from this program, I don’t think I would have been as successful so far in my college journey. Words cannot explain how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to participate in DREAM’s Summer Bridge Program.”
