Founded in 1998 by a college student who wanted to help her peers transition to college, Let’s Get Ready (LGR) has supported more than 50,000 students nationwide in their aspirations to gain access to college and earn a degree through our innovative near-peer mentorship model. The simple idea that near-peers are the best resource for students navigating college has matured to support more than 24,000 students in 45 states and over 1,800 zip codes nationwide.

LGR prioritizes students who are first-generation to college and from low-income communities, and our virtual, near-peer intervention is proven effective as our students graduate at double the rate of their peers!

 

 

We are excited to launch a partnership with the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities System this fall. Through this and other partners throughout the state, we aim to support 5,000 students to access and succeed in college by 2025 through the program model! To commemorate this incredible partnership, we will bring a brilliant community of academic, nonprofit, governmental, and philanthropic leaders together to announce this partnership at The Village on Thursday, April 18th, in Stamford, Connecticut. Guests will be the first to learn about this incredible partnership and LGR’s plans for supporting Connecticut with its nationally recognized model.

Let's Get Ready Turns 25. Join us for our 25th anniversary celebration.

Our model is rich and unique because we leverage technology to amplify the voices and expertise of high school and college students who are empowered to elevate one another, persist in college, and ignite change in their communities. LGR students graduate from college at DOUBLE THE RATE of their peers because of this investment in their leadership and futures.
