We are pleased to share that Gateway to College National Network has officially merged with Achieving the Dream. Gateway to College will be a program of Achieving the Dream, a national nonprofit based in the D.C. area that leads a growing network of more than 200 community colleges, including more than half of the community colleges in our home state of Oregon. ATD supports its network colleges with intensive training and resources to help their students, particularly low-income students and students of color, achieve their goals for academic success, personal growth, and economic opportunity.
We are confident that the merger will give GtCNN a strong platform for growth, both for our core Gateway to College program and newer initiatives like Gateway to Career and PDX Bridge. All GtCNN staff will be joining Achieving the Dream, with our Portland office becoming the west coast office of Achieving the Dream.
We invite you to visit this page for the full press release announcing this merger, and to learn more about the organization.
We appreciate your support over the years, and we look forward to our continued work to advance student success for the most vulnerable students to ensure that all young adults can fully participate in their local communities with meaningful, self-sustaining jobs.
