518Elevated Supports High School Students

Hear how the organization 518ElevatED (formerly Sponsor-a-Scholar) offers support for “promising underserved young people” in high schools in Albany, Schenectady, and Troy to explore careers and prepare for success in college. Laura Marx, president and CEO, outlines how volunteer mentors work one-on-one with participants through 10th grade and beyond. The organization also assists participants with exploring potential colleges and applying for various types of financial aid.
