ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

Let’s Get Ready (LGR) envisions a future when students from all socioeconomic backgrounds have the support they need to attain a college education. Through an innovative program model that stands apart from other college access and success programs, LGR serves more than 13,000 students annually from Philadelphia to Maine, and engages more than 150 college students as paid near-peer coaches, most of whom are former participants in the program. There is no nomination process or academic requirements for participation in Let’s Get Ready programs. Any student who expresses interest is eligible for services, with students from low-income backgrounds or who are first-generation-to-college given priority. Overall, 89% of LGR students are students of color, 80% are eligible for free or reduced price lunch, and 71% are the first in their family to attend college. All components of the organization’s programs are designed with this population and the requisite cultural competence in mind.

Let’s Get Ready has been in operation for nearly 25 years; the organization has an annual budget of $3 million and a staff of 18, who work remotely but have access to office spaces in New York City and Boston. Traditionally we have served students in our Northeast footprint - from Pennsylvania to Maine - but with the recent pivot toward a fully virtual program model we now serve students in 22 states across the country. We have just launched a Strategic Plan outlining a roadmap for growth and impact, including significant increases in students served and growing the team of full-time staff to 29. We aim to serve 25,000 students annually by 2025, which will almost double the number of students served on an annual basis. These increases will include students in our existing hubs: Greater Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia, as well as significant growth in students from rural communities, and other geographies across the country. We are simultaneously focused on increasing the revenue, visibility and focus on values necessary to support this future growth.
