“SpringForward completely changed my life. That is not an overstatement. I was completely rattled and lost after my first year; I had no idea what I wanted to do anymore nor what I could even do given my grades. SpringForward gave me a boost and lessons to help me move forward stronger and with the ability to accept that college is not linear.”- SpringForward 2023 participant

“I didn’t really know how to do college, and this program, I felt, grounded me.” -SpringForward 2023 participant
