Register to Attend the 12th Annual Celebration Dinner Online!

Across the St. Louis region, the education and health outcomes of our youth are too often predetermined by their zip code. But at Access, we believe in equity: that every student should have every chance to thrive every day, regardless of where they live. This year, we are inviting our supporters to take a deep dive into the lives of our students, with an exclusive Access Academies documentary screening. You’ll hear firsthand about the dreams and aspirations of our students, the hurdles they face, and how the support Access provides keeps them on the path to success. For a sneak peek, watch the trailer above!

In-Person Dinner Attendance Has Been Limited

Due to the recent rise in local Covid-19 cases, we are limiting the in-person attendance at this year’s Celebration Dinner and have reached our capacity. Simply, the health and safety of our students, supporters, and staff remain our top priority, and we don’t feel it is prudent to host a large in-person gathering at this time — even with proper safety protocols in place.

As such, we are inviting you to join us virtually from the comfort of your own home. Same day: Thursday, September 9th. Same time: 7pm (live stream begins). The same inspiring program focused on the incredible accomplishments of our young scholars. This year’s event will also include an exclusive Access documentary screening and panel discussion with our students led by Gabrielle Hays of PBS NewsHour. You won’t want to miss it.

And while you no longer have to dress up to attend,
 you do still have to register here by September 8th to receive the free virtual link. As always, thank you for your understanding, and for your continued commitment to our students and Access Academies’ mission. We look forward to welcoming you online on September 9th!
