  • Graduate! Philadelphia

JOIN US on Tuesday, May 23rd. Graduate! Philadelphia will be hosting a breakfast as part of OnThe Table Philly, an initiative of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Philadelphia Foundation, as a way to spark great conversations and ideas about how to strengthen our City! (OnTheTablePHL.org)
For those of you who don't already know, Graduate! Philadelphia works with Comebackers - adults who have some college credit who want to go back to school to complete their degree. In Philadelphia, there are 80,000 adults in this situation and 316,000 in the greater Philadelphia region. Since 2008, we've helped thousands of adults return back to college and have had over 900 adults earn 1045 degrees.
Our topic is how youth who have an adult in their lives who has a college degree are more likely to get to and through both high school and college.  As a leader in our City, we want you to share your thoughts on this important issue. Let's see how we can work together to make sure every child can succeed.
