The Collective Success Network is building a platform in Philadelphia for professionals and companies to support and mentor college students from disadvantaged backgrounds who may also be the first generation in their family to attend college. This initiative is a collaboration between professionals and students leading local campus organizations for first-generation college students.
Joining this network will give you access to a social support network of diverse caring professionals who have relevant life experience to help you navigate the path forward. Many of the professional founders, mentors, and supporters are professionals who were once lower-income, first-generation college students.
Activities that we plan to organize include: a mentorship program, career development workshops, networking gatherings and other events tailored to the needs, challenges and concerns of college students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
We are currently seeking students to be a part of our steering committee to organize events, implement programs and continue to define key priorities as we are developing the organization. We are also looking to connect with student clubs and organizations where FGLI (first-generation low-income) students are members. Please let us know if you are a member of these clubs and can serve as a liaison/spokesperson.
Our initial goal is to recruit 200 professionals and 200 students to sign up. We plan to formally begin programming in the 2017-2018 calendar year. To learn more about us, please visit our new website: https://collectivesuccess.org
Please fill out this form to join this initiative. We need your input to guide us on where to focus our programming efforts. We will NOT share or sell any personal information with anyone else outside the organization.
