10,000 Degrees

What We Do:

We convert potential to degree by helping students from low-income backgrounds get to and through college. Unlike most high school and college assistance programs, our College Success Programs have no GPA requirement to join. We are also unique in helping students move from community college to a baccalaureate pathway. We help them to graduate career-ready.

100% of our students come from low-income backgrounds; 89% are students of color; and 85% are first generation college students. We envision a world where all students, regardless of race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic background will have the full range of educational opportunities, support, and resources to realize their potential.

Since COVID-19, our services are 100% virtual yet our comprehensive model provides wrap-around support, college/financial aid counseling, near-peer coaching, access to scholarships, financial aid management, assistance with transfer to a four-year college or university, and career development opportunities. Programming is delivered through our innovative Fellowship model: Fellows are recent college graduates, mostly alumni of 10,000 Degrees, who help students understand, navigate and manage the college-going process.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Assist with social media design
  • Become a career mentor for our students.
  • Volunteer for student outreach
  • Donate gift cards/restaurant cards for student incentives

Business Partners:



Being the first one in my family to attend college, I was unfamiliar with the process. 10,000 Degrees guided me to know more about all the opportunities that are open to me.
