For our 18th birthday weekend, we are launching our inaugural Founding Day peer-to-peer campaign. Our goal is to raise $18,000 to kick start the next 18 years.
By supporting Reality Changers, you are helping thousands of young people and their families change their lives. Would you like to help more students to prepare to go to college and reach their dream of a better future?
When Christopher Yanov launched Reality Changers on May 19, 2001, he had 4 students and one room. Now, 18 years later, with your generous support, Reality Changers has helped thousands of young people throughout Southern California finish high school and go on to college.
We have hundreds of students on our waiting list, so our work isn't finished. Indeed, we're just getting started.
Over the past 18 years, we've learned a lot, especially in our College Town program. Each year, we work with 200 low-income, high-potential 8th-11th graders to be college-ready by 12th grade. Many students begin the program with GPAs between 0.0 and 2.0; they come from families with low incomes and households where few adults have even finished high school. Our students need a complex support system to become successful and at-risk youth need more non-academic face-to-face time.
Few foundations, city or state grants provide support for the core needs of a non-profit. That's why we have created a Reality Changers Futures Fund specifically dedicated to the support of the daily operations we need to serve the needs of at-risk youth.
We hope you will make a gift and invest in the future of Reality Changers. Your gift of support for our operations will help tough kids and kids in tough circumstances transform their lives and achieve their dreams of becoming the first in their families to go on to college. Thank you for your support!
