HOW IT WORKS

Degrees of Change helps communities and colleges develop networks of diverse, well-educated, mission-minded leaders by sending underrepresented students to college together in cohorts while inspiring them to work together and use their college degrees to make their home communities better. We offer a range of program models and consulting services along with curriculum and technology tools to help our partners build and expand effective, high-impact programs.  Here is how our process works:
  • STEP 1: CONTACT

    Contact us today to tell us about your interest. We’ll schedule a conversation to learn more about your context and explore how we can help you achieve your goals.
  • STEP 2: CONSIDER

    Once we understand your context and goals, we’ll put together a proposal for how we can best use our tools and expertise to help you and your partners accomplish those objectives.
  • STEP 3: CONVENE

    If you are looking to bring Act Six or a similar initiative to your community or campus, we’ve found a critical first step is to convene a group of leaders from potential community and college partners for a summit.  We’ll present our models and results to the group and facilitate a conversation about what is possible for your group.
  • STEP 4: COLLABORATE

    When shared interest between community and college partners emerges, we begin the collaboration process with you, making our tools and expertise available to build a high impact program customized for your context.
