OUR MISSION

As Peer Leaders of PeerForward, our mission is to transform the lives of the youth by educating them about college and career paths to plan for life after high school. We offer a variety of resources and events to help inform students about the numerous pathways in which they can pursue to ensure the success of their future.

 

CAMPAIGNS

As Peer Leaders, we run three main campaigns:

  • Applying to Three or More Colleges

    • ​Increasing the number of college applications submitted from one to two can raise a student’s probability of enrollment by 40%. Submitting an additional application increases the probability another 10%. 

  • Applying for Financial Aid (FAFSA)

    • ​The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required for need-based financial assistance. However, 2.3 million eligible students never file. FAFSA filers have a 72% greater persistence rate in college than those who do not.

  • Creating a Post Secondary Plan​​​

    • Ensuring that students create a post secondary plan not only allows them to prepare for life after high school but increases their chances of being successful in the career or college of their choice.
