Close the Education GapThrough the
Power of Peers

Students from high-income families earn a degree at a rate 4X GREATER than those from low-income families.

PeerForward's mission is to close that gap.

25+ Years

bridging the education gap as coaches and advocates, training and serving youth attending low-income schools.

600K+ Students

impacted through our hands-on workshops and campaigns.

$100M in Financial Aid

unlocked annually for students assisted in partner high schools.

The Critical Work We Do

We empower students to lead their peers to and through higher education.

The best predictor of postsecondary enrollment and success for students from low-income communities is whether they have friends who plan on going. Our model ignites that positive peer influence. We prepare students to help themselves and their peers apply to and graduate from college.

High School Program

Our signature summer workshops, curriculum, training camps, and year-round coaching equips Peer Leaders to help their peers with their postsecondary options and foster a culture where everyone continues education after high school.

College Program

PeerForward trains and coaches college students who, in turn, support fellow students so they connect to academic resources, meet financial aid requirements, and engage with campus activities, improving chances of earning a degree.
