The mission of ETL Education
Foundation is to maximize academic
success potential by providing
students opportunities to explore
educational options, bolster academic
skills, earn scholarship support,
enhance cultural awareness, and
establish mentoring relationships.  The
Foundation accomplishes its mission
through the sponsoring of its unique
programming, and partnering with
higher education, corporate, and civic
organizations.
Since 1985 ETL Education Foundation has championed the cause of higher education opportunity and
access for traditionally underserved and underperforming student populations.  For over three
decades its members have held true to the mission of maximizing success potential by providing
students opportunities to explore educational options, bolster academic skills, earn scholarship
support, enhance cultural awareness, and establish mentoring relationships.  Through its unique
programming ETL Education Foundation has served over 3000 students, primarily from the New York
metropolitan area but including students from at least 12 different states throughout the country.  Today
the Foundation accomplishes its goals primarily through its College Readiness Program which includes
the Success Workshop Series, the Virtual University Initiative, and its flagship program; the College
Tour.
ETL Education Foundation has a vision that all students may have available to them the resources to
maximize their success potential.  The realization of that vision requires collaboration between community,
education, corporate, government, and grassroots organizations—all have a role to play in insuring
educational equity and keeping America’s vision and hope of prosperity, equality, and unlimited potential
alive.
