Application Process

I joined Green Dot because its mission aligned to my own educational philosophy. Growing up in a low-income neighborhood while attending a school in a neighboring middle-class suburb, I had experienced first hand the disparate versions of schooling offered to kids in my neighborhood versus the kids I went to school with. Our mission bridges the two worlds, so I'm excited to be a part of the bigger movement to transform public education.

Who We Serve

The stakes are high in California. 

We are working toward something bigger. Public education in California state mirrors national trends for students in historically underserved communities. More than half of our students qualify for free or reduced school lunch, more than 20% of our students receive special education services and at least 10% of our students are English Language Learners.

In 2018, California's graduation rate

Our efforts are giving hope to a whole generation of students. For too many years, the areas that we serve have been overlooked and forgotten. We have made the youth of these areas the focus of our work. Our goal is to motivate our students so they have the aspiration and ability to go to college. Hopefully, when they graduate from college, they have a desire to return to their community and work to improve it for the next generation.
