HOMEGROWN IN CHICAGO

What started as an afterschool program with one teacher at Dunbar High School in Chicago has grown into a national movement. While college graduation rates from Chicago Public School students have improved from 6 to 16% in the last 10 years, we still have our work cut out for us.

SCALING
UP

By the end of the 2016/17 school year, OneGoal will be in more than 80 of 100 high schools with low college enrollment. We’re working to get into as many schools as possible while growing the number of students served in our current partner schools. We will not rest until all of our city’s students have a real opportunity to earn a college degree.

HUB OF
INNOVATION

Thank You

At the 2017 Graduation Gala, we collectively raised more than $1 million to close the degree divide in Chicago and across the nation. Thank you for joining us – in person and in spirit – as we celebrated the accomplishments, both present and future, of our Fellows from the college graduating Class of 2021.
