Why Volunteer with SCS Noonan Scholars
Of the 4.5 million low-income, first-generation students currently enrolled in college, only 11% will earn bachelor’s degree within 6 years. This low graduation rate reflects the myriad of complex academic, social, and cultural challenges these students experience being the first in their family to attend college.
To ensure that the journey to higher education does not end where it begins, SCS Noonan Scholars provides students with the support system and networks they often lack. Through college counseling, academic preparation, financial scholarships, mentorship, and internship and job assistance, 90% of our students earn a bachelor’s degree within 6 years.
We need you to keep the momentum going.
