SEA fights poverty and homelessness by helping low-income young people make strong transitions to local community colleges and four-year universities. Many of our students have been homeless; others are immigrants, foster youth, or young parents. SEA is the only college access organization in Washington State – and one of few in the US – that serves students who did not successfully complete high school. What they all share in common is motivation to complete their educations, coupled with a lack of adequate resources to achieve their goals. We provide our students with financial and social resources so they can excel academically, as well as personalized, compassionate, respectful academic advising and advocacy. As a result, our students are succeeding in higher education and leaving poverty behind, preparing to give back to society as professionals and leaders of the next generation.
