What we stand for

Stand for Children’s mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of their background, graduate from high school prepared for, and with access to, a college education.

Other Current Actions


An Open Letter to President Obama

Right after the tragedy in Newtown, CT, President Obama said “we can’t tolerate this anymore.” It’s time, he said, "to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this. Regardless of the politics."  Over the past few days, several members of Congress who previously voted in lockstep with the gun lobby have announced a change of heart. We applaud their courage.


Stand University for Parents

Stand UP is a family engagement course for parents of elementary school children. This semester we’re working with 4 schools in Chicago, 3 schools in Memphis, and 2 schools in Phoenix with a goal of graduating +400 parents.
