Students Rising Above
Students Rising Above (SRA) was created in 1998 by KPIX 5 anchor Wendy Tokuda and began as a series of news stories featuring low-income Bay Area youth rising above tremendous odds of poverty, homelessness, abandonment, and neglect. In 2003, the scholarship program was developed into a 501(c)3 nonprofit helping low-income students attend and graduate from college and transition into the workforce.
In 2014, Students Rising Above launched the SRA College2Careers Hub and now has over 12,000 registered users. The SRA Hub is a comprehensive online program that takes our expertise and 19 years of hands-on experience and makes it available online to students who are not currently in our scholarship program. The SRA Hub provides personalized assistance on all topics related to college admissions, college success, and career development.
