As educators, we often encounter extraordinary students with the potential and drive to achieve great things, but who face significant obstacles on their educational paths. FCE is a resource for teachers and counselors who want to provide more for those students. By working with us and referring students and families who could benefit from the intensive support and one-to-one nurturing FCE provides, educators can help ensure that promising students get the chances they deserve.

I can’t emphasize enough the importance of FCE’s programs. FCE provides amazing support to first generation students, helping them acquire the necessary resources to enroll in and graduate from college. Students and their families are well understood by FCE and treated with consideration and respect by FCE staff and volunteers."
