We are truly thankful for your generous contribution to our program and its mission. Our goal within Emory Pipeline Collaborative is to create extensive learning opportunities and mentorship experiences for promising high school students within the Atlanta Public School system. Because of your donation, we can continue to work closely with deserving students from several local high schools and to provide them special learning experiences at the Emory University School of Medicine. The Emory Pipeline program is truly unique in its ability to support these high school students with both undergraduate and graduate student mentors.
As with any large, dynamic program, we have operating costs that impact the number of students we can support through the program. Your contribution helps preserve and expand our nine-year tradition by providing books and laptops for our college-bound seniors, funding for our closing ceremony (our culminating event of the year), after-school food for high school student participants, and transportation for each session.
Emory Pipeline serves a critical role in facilitating positive change in the lives of remarkable students. With your support, we can help students like Quenshawn Brandon (a senior at South Atlanta High School) fulfill her dream of pursuing a college education. Here are her thoughts on the program:
"Emory Pipeline has encouraged personal growth in me and my peers. It is a great mentorship program that gives you knowledge you may need in the medical field. Emory Pipeline has taught me so much, from helping me make a final decision on my future career goals to gaining crucial communication skills. I have been a part of Emory Pipeline for two years and attended a National Youth Leadership Program during the summer of 2015. Emory Pipeline motivates me to be ambitious and to be an effective leader. Being a part of Emory Pipeline the last two years has been the best part of my life."
Our motto is "Each One, Teach One," and it certainly takes each person in our community to invest in our students. Thank you, once again, for your investment into our students and their future. Please continue to spread the word about our program and our current Momentum fundraising project.
