A Visit with The Cabbage Patch College Scholars

“You don’t work your way out of poverty, you educate your way out” is a phrase that former longtime staff member Roosevelt
Chin loved to say. This truth is at the heart of The Cabbage Patch’s College Scholars Program, an inspiring initiative that drives our mission to profoundly change lives.

The College Scholars program assures that at-risk students prepare to be college-ready; choose their college goals wisely; apply themselves throughout their college career; and graduate debt free, or with minimal debt.
