AMBW Outreach Center
inThe United States

One in three students who enroll in higher education in the U.S. will never complete their degree. Those most at-risk of dropping out are likely to be financially challenged. Many are left with loans they cannot pay off, given careers are harder to achieve and hourly wage does not pay enough.

The inability to repay the student loan taken before dropping out, coupled with a lack of post-secondary education impacts any future loans or job opportunities, and the vicious cycle continues to disenfranchise students from opportunities.

18% of survey respondents at 2-year colleges and 14% at 4-year universities have reported experiencing homelessness.  85% report having to work while enrolled in school, with 50% earning minimum wage.

It is against this backdrop that A More Balanced World seeks to create opportunities for undeserved students who are among this vulnerable population.
