About Us

Greenhouse Scholars cultivates leaders to change low-income families and communities.


Our vision is to create a community of leaders who will evolve the communities of the world. Our values are leadership, accountability, community, and relentlessness.


We support high performing, under-resourced students during and after college with a Whole Person program that includes 8 components: mentorship, peer support, internships, professional networking, Summer Symposium, financial support, skills modules, and impact. Together with our 200+ Scholars, we are effecting generational change for thousands of individuals, families, and communities locally and across the globe.


-Our Scholars' families have an average annual household income of $32,000, and 76% of our Scholars are the first generation in their families to go to college.


-Nationally, only 11% of low income students who go to college graduate within 6 years. Ninety percent of Greenhouse Scholars graduate within 6 years.


-For every Scholar in our program, we have approximately 50 volunteers, donors, and supporters who are opening doors for them and creating new opportunities for under-resourced students.


-Our Scholars, in turn, directly impact and empower an average of 60 low-income middle and high school students each.


Join a team that utilizes a unique program and a community of support to build up the communities that need it the most.
