College Changes Everything
Reality Changers is a nonprofit organization in San Diego that prepares youth to become first-generation college graduates and agents of change in their community.
Over The Edge
Join Reality Changers for a one-of-a-kind fundraiser! Over the Edge is your opportunity to rappel down the side of a high-rise building. Enjoy gorgeous views of sunny San Diego and a life-changing adrenaline rush -- all while making a difference for local youth. No prior experience necessary, for participants ages 13 to 103!
Become a Volunteer Tutor
YOU can be the person who makes a difference in a teen's life! We're seeking collaborators who will work together with our youth to help them achieve their academic goals.
Volunteer tutors help out once a week in the evenings. No experience necessary. Training is provided.
Monthly giving spreads the financial impact of your contributions across the entire year, lessening the one-time impact on your wallet and allowing you to give more over time.
Supporting First-Generation Futures
Reality Changers serves youth who will be the first in their families to graduate from college. Our programs support students from backgrounds that are typically underrepresented on college campuses, advancing equal education opportunities in our region and beyond.
Launching Agents of Change
College makes a big difference for underserved communities. Not only do college degrees open up new career prospects for individuals, but our work builds equity for families and neighborhoods. Reality Changers alumni create change by working, investing, and getting involved in their communities.
