Who We Are

Students Rising Above (SRA) is an award-winning nonprofit organization that sends low-income, first-generation college students to four-year colleges and universities. 90% of SRA students graduate from college. Since 1998, SRA has helped nearly 600 students graduate from a four-year college. SRA serves students in the 11-county Bay Area and provides personal guidance and mentoring, internships and career guidance, and financial support from college application, through graduation and into the workforce. A 501(c)3, SRA is funded by individual donations, and grants and contributions from corporations, foundations, and other nonprofit organizations.

In 2014, SRA created the SRA College2Careers Hub to share its experience and expertise with thousands of students across the country to help them successfully navigate the critical pathway from high school, through college into the workforce.
