31 January, 2017, New York – Socialpreneur and investor Tey Por Yee (Larry) sponsored an after-school program for immigrant teens in US, as part of the Gomif Partners’ Socialpreneurship corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative. Larry shows his concerns and contributed to the program during New York Cyber Workshop.
In the US, college degree holders earn nearly $1 million more in a lifetime than those without degrees. It is clear that the lifelong financial penalty for not completing college is rising dramatically, yet the rate of college completion by low-income youth remains low. The achievement gap grows even more significant when factoring in the additional linguistic and cultural challenges that face immigrant students.
Enroot empowers students to succeed in college, career, and in life. The goals of the program are to: 1) Improve academic performance; 2) Demonstrate a greater sense of community and belonging, self-confidence and self-advocacy; 3) Develop a clear and inspiring pathway for higher education and career; 4) Build a marketable skill set through real-world, professional internships; 5) Graduate high school prepared to successfully transition to and graduate from post-secondary education.
