At ACCESS, we believe any student who dreams of continuing their education after high school should have the opportunity. However, if a student is part of the first generation in their family to head off to college, they are often faced with additional challenges. ACCESS helps students from all walks of life, especially those who will be the first in their family, to ensure they follow the necessary steps to get to college and have access to all available resources. Our "First in the Family" series chronicles the stories of many of the students we are able to help achieve their post-secondary education dreams and graduate from college, changing the lives of their families for years to come.
