2017 KIPP Alumni Survey: Identity and Belonging Matter in College

Discusses the results of KIPP's Alumni Survey for the first time. The findings from this survey, which was conducted in 2016, illuminated key challenges for KIPP alumni in college when it comes to managing finances and finding work-study jobs and internships. Twenty-five percent of KIPP alumni in college are financially supporting other family members at the same time they are going to school, and 40 percent of alumni in college skip meals to pay for other expenses. These findings were shared with college partners and regional leaders so that both can improve guidance practices and advocate for new approaches.
