Our Mission

To earn a degree that will allow them to change their economic and personal prospects, historically underserved students need and deserve greater support—support that can help them maintain the momentum that has gotten them into college in the first place.

Beyond 12 is a national technology-based nonprofit that aims to increase the number of students from under-resourced communities who graduate from U.S. colleges and universities, and translate their degrees into meaningful employment and choice-filled lives.

Our History

This is a critical moment in our country’s history to ensure that the young people who have been most underserved by our educational institutions receive the support and guidance they need to thrive. Beyond 12’s years of experience and accomplishments to date position us well to meet the moment.
