Measuring Our Success
At Let’s Get Ready, we measure the success of our programs with both qualitative and quantitative indicators. This report reflects data from high school and college students served in our most recent program year (almost 14,000 students), and it examines college enrollment and graduation for our students who graduated from high school between 2014 and 2020 (close to 22,000 students).

All it takes is one person. One person to believe in you, one person to show that they care. One person to be a mentor. One person to change a life. I hope I have changed a life, just as let’s get ready has changed mine.
