About Matriculate

Matriculate’s mission is to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to make the leap to our best colleges. Our vision is that one day all the best students in America will have access to and be supported in the best colleges—regardless of their socio-economic status or background—which will give them a unique opportunity to change the trajectory of their own lives and the lives of their families.

Matriculate leverages peer-to-peer relationships and networks to empower high-achieving, low-income high school students to enroll in top colleges and universities. We train talented college students at leading institutions to provide the information, guidance, and support that these high school students need to apply to, gain admission at, and excel in the best institutions. College is an inflection point for low-income high-achievers, and Matriculate allows this overlooked segment of our country’s top talent to realize its potential and address income inequality from the bottom up.


Summer Intern

June 2020 - September 2020 New York City, NY
“I liked that I was able to get a broad range of experience in different areas of a nonprofit setting, ranging from development to operations to finance to program development and beyond. My projects included recoding a vacation day tracker spreadsheet, editing promotional videos, building resources for the high school students we serve, and more. I also liked the workplace culture which is based on feedback, employee well-being, collaboration, and learning from mistakes, among others. Given that I am involved in the nonprofit as a volunteer and as a paid student leader, I enjoyed being able to see the back-end of how the organization is run and get a novel viewpoint. Lastly, I appreciated how much my perspective and voice was valued - I was treated as part of the team and not just given menial tasks to do, but rather valuable work, and I was asked about my personal learning goals so that the internship experience could be tailored to me.”
