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).
