    Get Schooled is a national non-profit organization dedicated to helping young people get to college, find first jobs, and succeed in both.

    Founded in 2010 through a strategic partnership between Viacom and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Get Schooled has helped more than one million young people on their path to college and first jobs, targeting youth from low-income families, racial minorities, and first-generation college students.

    No direct-to-youth education organization offers our combination of youth-first, research-backed resources; personalized support; recognition for progress; institutional partnerships; secure data management; and a proven track record of affecting the educational trajectory of thousands of youth.

    Students can make accounts on the Get Schooled platform to receive support in their college journey.
