Ready, Set, College!


Help first-generation college students prepare as they head to school in Fall 2018!

Mile High United Way is working to help students in our community start the school year off right. Denver is home to hundreds of first-generation college students who are hopeful, ambitious, and seeking to become the first in their families to earn their diploma. As they work hard to save for tuition, obtain scholarships, and navigate the world of financial aid, the costs associated with starting school add up quickly. Mile High United Way is proud to provide some of these essential school supplies to first-generation college students through the Ready, Set, College Day of Service, hosted by the Tocqueville Society.
