A new initiative to boost low income students success in college through greater business involvement with high schools was announced by College Summit at the White House in Washington, D.C.

There is now an #OpportunityForAll. We are celebrating the announcement of College Summit’s new program, ScholarJob, and we are making an $800,000 commitment over the next four years, along with several other companies, to support College Summit’s initiative to help low-income students across America make the connection between completing their education and getting a great career.

Beyond financial support, we will work with College Summit on their high school curriculum. The goal is to help students understand that skills like math, teamwork and customer service are required to succeed in the workplace. 

To learn more about College Summit’s new program, ScholarJob, view their complete news release and read Samantha Lasky’s blog post about her White House experience.
