MESSAGE FROM JONAH, OUR CEO
“By incorporating the lessons we have learned, Stand is positioned to take bolder leadership and make a greater difference in the lives of students growing up in poverty than at any point in our history. Together, we can achieve a level of impact for African American, Latino, Native American, and other marginalized students whose potential goes under-tapped that few organizations can.”
