I know some really fucking awesome people. Two in particular started a program called “College Access Para Todos” (college access for everyone) and they have been working with so many undocumented students to get them into college by doing SAT prep, helping them with scholarship applications to private colleges in the area, and offering them really challenging pushes so they don’t quit. So far the program has gotten several students into a private college here — with a full ride or with the student paying almost no more than $5,000 for an entire 4 year education. A really good friend of mine just got his SAT scores back and now he’s eligible for applying for their merit scholarship (full ride). I’m super happy for him. He graduated in 2009 and since then has started a business with her brother because he wasn’t going to be able to go on to college. I talked to him about it not so long along and it was really inspiring to hear that he still has hope of going on to college and pursuing a career in the medical field.
