Degrees of Change mission is to prepare diverse, homegrown leaders to succeed in college and use their degrees to build more vibrant and equitable communities.

Degrees of Change AmeriCorps project is to provide intensive support to the recruitment, selection and training phase of Act Six and Ready to Rise programs in the Yakima Valley, supporting high school seniors to be college ready and transition to college successfully, while developing leadership skills and building a strong, supportive peer community. In this way, the AmeriCorps project is central to beginning of our journey with students to and through college. It is during this first year that our program participants, we call them scholars, build life changing relationships with their peers who will walk with them throughout their college journey and beyond, it is where they will receive leadership development, identity and cross cultural communication training that they will rely upon in both the most meaningful and most challenging moments in college and beyond that will help them persevere and persist towards their goal of a bachelor’s degree and living a life of impact.
