Vision

Establish the Wily Network on college campuses across New England to improve graduation outcomes for students navigating their college careers independently.

Mission

  • To ensure our Scholars have the tools and networks necessary to thrive in four-year residential colleges.
  • To empower our Scholars to transition successfully into post-college life and become vibrant members of their communities.

Wily Scholars are promising students who have experienced life challenges such as foster care or homelessness, or whose parents may be dealing with addiction, mental health issues, or incarceration. The Wily Network provides a critical safety net for these Scholars as they navigate college on their won. The Wily program offers weekly coaching, financial assistance, community-building support, and networking opportunities to help them move from surviving to thriving.
