THE EMPOWERMENT OF POTENTIAL
More than 60% of community college students fail to graduate within six years.
We believe that human capital plays a bigger role than financial capital.
Each student is paired with a Navigator who provides them what we call “supercharged” case management: holistic, wrap-around services that launch from a place of believing in our students’ capability to reach their goals.
Our approach is individualized and relationship-based, so each Navigator-student relationship looks different. For one student, that might look like phone calls to check-in every other day, or walking with them between classes. For another, it might look like paying for a car repair, a smoking cessation program, or helping source safe and affordable childcare.

When paired with a case manager, students increase their success of graduating at a rate 4x higher than those who don’t receive our services. What’s more, thirty-five percent of female Stay the Course students graduated three years after enrollment compared to less than 1% in the comparison group.
