COLLECTIVELY IMPACTING ACHIEVEMENT
To make completion of post-secondary education an achievable reality for every student in the greater Holland/Zeeland area - particularly low-income students, students of color, and those who will be the first in their families to attain a degree or credential.
Increase the percentage of students who attain a post-secondary degree or credential from 45%-75% by 2025.
We understand the task is big, and the process looks different. With a community that understands an "all hands on deck" approach, we are confident change is possible and the future of our community is bright.
We Stand with DREAMers.
Destination Education is focused on making completion of post-secondary education an achievable reality for every student in the greater Holland/Zeeland area – particularly low-income students, students of color, and those who will be the first in their families to attain a degree or credential. Many students who we serve in our area have DACA status and we want to assure them and their families that DE is committed to completing our mission of serving EVERY student and supporting them as they strive to attain a post-secondary degree or credential , reach their personal goals and continue to positively impact our community. We encourage our leaders in Washington to act quickly and develop legislation to address the unique needs of the "Dreamers" in a way that does not harmfully impact their lives or the communities in which they live.
