Virginia Athletes for Education
The mission of Virginia Athletes for Education is to enlist, assist, and instruct prominent athletes to leverage their popularity and influence to:
- Raise money for college access programs and scholarships
- Educate community leaders about the barriers to higher education for low and moderate income, and first generation students
- Influence students to stay in school and to excel by pursuing rigorous course work and obtaining high grades
- Encourage students to enroll in and complete programs of post-secondary education
Virginia Athletes for Education believes that hardworking, meritorious students should not be deprived of an opportunity to attend college simply because of a lack of funding. Our vision is to see that every student graduate from high school and every student who has the desire and demonstrates the ability, be able to attend post-secondary education.
