Since our inception in 2009, BetterGrads has always been a volunteer-run effort. We are an education startup currently based in San Francisco.
No one has ever received a paycheck.
And yet, more than 70 volunteers have contributed nearly 1000 full-time equivalent working days to serve more than 2000 students. These include students (high school and college), professors, school administrators, higher ed professionals, community members and others.
What Is BetterGrads?
Are you prepared for college?
BetterGrads can help you create college-going culture at your school.
We equip students and administrators with the tools they need to tap into the knowledge, connections and financial capital of past graduates and other professional networks to help students succeed in college, career and their personal lives.
BetterGrads has served more than 2000 high school students through one-on-one mentoring, in-person Q&A panels, connecting students to advisers.
We will continue to serve students “College 101″ on our website, which features real stories and experiences from real students and alumni.
