First Graduate

Social ButterflyHometown Hero

We are a 10-12 year program that coaches San Francisco students to become the first in their families to graduate from college ready to pursue careers that are meaningful to them!

I graduated college from the University of California, Merced as a first-generation student. I studied Management & Business Economics and last November I accepted an operations analyst position at Goldman Sachs in Salt Lake City. I joined First Graduate when I was in 6th grade and have been very fortunate to have amazing mentors and staff who have contributed to my growth as an individual.

Only 11% of first generation students nation-wide graduate from college, compared to 72% of First Graduate students.
