Community Colleges: The Best Kept Secret in America and Why they Need our Help

More than a million Americans earned degrees or certificates from community colleges last year. Nearly half of them were part of the first generation in their family to go to college, and nearly half relied on state or federal aid to pay for tuition.

State and federal funding is drying up, making myth of the American Dream. Learn what’s at stake and how you can get involved.
