“My favorite thing about serving with College Corps is I am able to push students to their maximum potential in their times of struggle and be their motivation to see the light. When their goals are accomplished and better grades and better results come to play they are more appreciative of what was earned and not given to them.”

HELEN CUMBEE COREY
“I have loved getting to work with Mary Leary and Camie Bianco while serving 170 kids per month by providing supplemental food to them for something bigger than myself and gave me the opportunity to be incorporated into a nonprofit organization while still being a student. I have learned so much about how a grassroots nonprofit works.”

As time has passed, I have seen many of them make a great amount of progress in more than just their studies, and I have found it to be an extremely rewarding experience.”
