The Reality Changers Mission

We prepare youth to become first-generation college graduates and agents of change in their communities.

REALITY CHANGERS IN ACTION

"The tutoring and public speaking practice have been very helpful, but I also am just glad to have Reality Changers as a second home. There isn’t another program that has affected me as much as Reality Changers."

"After we finished the college applications, we talked about things like living in dorms, getting used to the school, and getting involved. Because of Reality Changers, I feel prepared to go to college."

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION

Being The Change We Wish To See

Reality Changers champions and walks alongside first-generation college students as we work together towards education equity. We are accountable to the diverse communities that we serve and we actively affirm the dignity of all individuals.

Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion statement codifies these values and includes an action plan for adopting and maintaining D.E.I. best practices. In 2021, we were recognized as an “Outstanding Organization for Diversity & Inclusion” by the Association of Fundraising Professionals San Diego Chapter.

A FOUNDATION FOR THE FUTURE
