​​Every SEO participant is not on the same journey.

Some are underserved with dreams of college graduation. Others are high achievers but underrepresented in their fields. All are hungry for opportunity.

Our alumni are the backbone of SEO

SEO’s network of more than 13,000 alumni spans 46 U.S. states and 48 countries and their career track record is historic.

SEO is the top-rated education non-profit

In 2017, SEO received a perfect 100 Point Rating from Charity Navigator, America’s premier charity evaluator. Out of more than 9,000 charities rated, less than 1% have earned perfect scores.

Help close the achievement gap within a generation; support our achievers.
