About Us

Destination: College (DC), a growing non-profit organization, works with economically disadvantaged students at local high schools in Westchester County. DC recognizes that many talented athletes are unable to fulfill their dreams of participating in sports at the college level because of academic challenges. Through our network of local volunteers, DC provides academic support to high school students currently in the Mount Vernon, Greenburgh and Yonkers areas. DC offers, at no cost, onsite tutoring, mentorship, SAT test preparation, college advisement and assistance with all aspects of financial aid. Post college entrance support is also provided, all through a trained network of local volunteers. Since its founding in 2006, DC has helped hundreds of low-income students gain acceptance to colleges best suited to their academic, athletic and financial needs. DC’s college retention rates far surpass the national norms for similarly situated students.
