This year’s Access Gala will bring together our most valued supporters across the past decade to celebrate three major milestones in the organization’s history including our tenth anniversary; the first Access students to graduate from college (and phase 2 of the program); and the launch of phase 3 of our 12-Year Promise (2 years post-college with job connections and career support). Come meet and be inspired by our students’ achievements as they celebrate their graduations from Ivy League schools such as Columbia and UPenn and leading local universities including SDSU.
This event is far different from any other gala in the region with the evening’s hosts and key speakers being current students of the program, which helps provide an opportunity to showcase our stories and impact through their eyes. From the moment you are escorted from the valet, through our reception and dinner, you will learn more about why our students are graduating high school and being accepted into some of the most illustrious colleges in the nation.
