15th Annual Celebration Dinner

At Access, we walk with our students from the first day of sixth grade through their college graduation and beyond. This year’s dinner, themed ‘Every Step of the Way,’ celebrates that enduring 11-year journey. Please join us on Thursday, May 30th, as we recognize our scholars’ hard work, showcase their achievements, and raise money for the essential programs, counseling, and scholarships that will help them unlock their full potential.

It still amazes me that I’ve had somebody in my corner since the 6th grade. Access has followed me until I graduated from college.
