Accessive is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides low-income students with the mentorship, guidance, motivation and educational support necessary for them to reach their fullest potential.
Research shows that low-income students are not succeeding at the same rate as their high-income peers. This isn't surprising, considering that these students often lack access to the enriched academic opportunities, college preparation, and quality counseling that could help them succeed.
Yet, low-income students constitute over 50 percent of the student population in many states—meaning that their insufficient resources leave them severely underrepresented. The inadequacy of educational policies for such a large group of students has enormous implications for the nation’s future social mobility and economic prosperity. Without more deliberate focus on this issue, our education system will become an unwitting accomplice to the nation’s growing income inequality.
With this in mind, we aim to bridge the gap by providing low-income students with the academic resources they need to triumph. By leaving them armed with the tools to succeed, we hope to do our part in setting future generations on the right track.
Accessive hopes to promote socioeconomic mobility by providing students with equal access to professional and educational resources, regardless of income bracket.
Accessive hopes that by providing students with equal access to academic resources, we can help progress towards a world where a student's success is tied more to their excellence and aptitude than their background or socioeconomic status.
