100% of G.R.A.D. Girls Matriculated into their 2nd Year of Post-Secondary Education
According to the Pew Research Center, in 2010 the number of Hispanics enrolling in post-secondary institutions hit an all time high. However, Hispanics only made up 9% of the Bachelors degrees earned in 2010.
In 2012 Con Mi MADRE understood that to help increase post-secondary completion rates they would need to expand into post-secondary programming, thus the Girls Reaching A Dream (G.R.A.D.). program was created. Con Mi MADRE began this program with 20 first-time freshman providing them with an array of services to help them persist in post-secondary education. We are proud to say that % of our G.R.A.D. girls matriculated into their second year of post-secondary education. Thanks to the success of this pilot group, Con Mi MADRE is now expanding its programming to provide services to participants throughout their post-secondary education.
Our Class of 2013, consisting of 122 students, was accepted into the following schools:
