IMPACTING GENERATIONS FOR SUCCESS

For 30 years, FGCB has helped young people realize a dream that often seemed out of reach: To be the first in their families to receive a college education.


FGCB is a community-based organization which offers youth and their families a “pipeline” of educational interventions comprising academic readiness, supportive services and guidance to achieve high school graduation, college admissions and earn a post-secondary degree.

The organization functions to address the need for “outside of school” and “college access supports” to increase the number of low-income students who graduate from high school prepared for college, enrolled in quality institutions and matriculate in four years.
