"First Generation College Bound has helped me monumentally, they have assisted me through much of the hardships I was having. They provided invaluable information about college that really educates the people involved. Many parents have not gone to college and many students are lost about the college process themselves which is part of the reason why some just do not attend and the ignorance about the college process just continues. I come from a single-parent household and my mom did not go to college. Although my father did, he is no longer around, which left us in a predicament. First Generation College Bound alleviated the stress that I felt. Their seminars have proven immensely helpful and they have greatly assisted me during my endeavors and because of them I am now in college and working hard to be the best that I can be so I can ultimately make those that believe in me proud, especially my mom. I could never forget the family that I have come to know and appreciate greatly, First Generation College Bound."
What People Say
“I wanted to take this time to say THANK YOU for everything you did for me and everything you continue to do for the youth of Laurel and the surrounding area. Your leadership motivated me to be the best person I could be. My hope is that I may influence youth (even if it is just one) as you did with me."
John Wilson– FGCB College Graduate from Frostburg State University
“FGCB helped me and my family understand the college acceptance procedures; a complicated and misunderstood process while everyone around me persuaded me to be "realistic" and apply to other schools. However, through diligence, tenacity and perseverance, FGCB assisted us with attending the school of our choice and for this, we are eternally grateful."
Maame and Sarah Amoyaw–Siblings that have benefitted from our College Access Program
Nathalie and Christian Polanco–Siblings that have benefitted from the College Access Program
"The program generates a blanket of help and support similar to that of a "domino effect," the triumph regenerates from generation-to-generation in our family starting from the eldest sibling to the youngest."
Erinayo, Olawale and Olakunle Soniregun–Siblings that have benefitted from the College Access Program
"FGCB houses a wealth of resources that is advantageous to all college-bound students. Mr. Fisher and his team gave us hope and set high expectations that were essential for enrolling in college. FGCB has placed us on a phenomenal journey beyond belief! Nothing short in abundance and rewards."
Cynthia and Lacreesha Tyner–Parent and FGCB college student at Bowie State University
"Engaging youth in a worthwhile manner through assistance and guidance in the college bound process is rare and the benefits of FGCB are incalculable. Anytime a program can aid in one’s advancement through life and instill confidence through independent learning, it’s an entity that should be supported.”
