The Diversity Org provides high school assemblies that educate underserved students about how to acquire economic success, we assist in attracting students to our college readiness nonprofit partners and we allow students to participate in skills based workshops at large corporations.
Low-income students statistically choose lower paying college majors and careers.
Low-income students attend and graduate from college less often -
60% of the wealthiest students complete their studies and graduate only about 16% of low- income college students graduate - National Center for Education Stats.
Conclusion: Fewer minorities attending college and high-paying jobs translates to wealth disproportion. it also translates to a lack of positive role models for younger generations on how to be financially successful.
