Streamline Miami Foundation - Project Higher Education
Miami, these are our children. Every child deserves access to quality education. For this reason, Streamline Miami is focused on the theme of "College Readiness." The majority of urban students are minorities and usually on free or reduced lunch, which is a standard measure for childhood poverty. While some of them have supportive parents at home, very few of them have family members who graduated from college. According to research done by the Pew Research Center, in 2012 only 50.9% of low-income high school graduates enrolled in a 2-4 year college, this puts them at a particular disadvantage compared to higher income peers, who are exposed to the idea of college from an early age. Early exposure to the idea of college attendance is critical.
Urban teachers and students need your help! Most urban students, come from low income households, but they are SO much more than these statistics.
Help us break the social and economic barriers that face these wonderful kids by donating to Project Higher Education!
Streamline Miami's goal is to raise $75,000, where the funds received will go directly to exposing students to higher education.
Last school year, Streamline Miami was able to take 50 students to University of Miami for a day on the University of Miami campus. The goal for this coming school year is to take more urban students and have them visit many university campuses throughout the state of Florida. Please assist Streamline Miami in reaching this goal by donating to www.gofundme.com/streamlinemiami.
