Admission Possible gets book mention

Local nonprofit organization Admission Possible was recently mentioned in a new book by author Shirley Sagawa entitled: "The American Way to Change: How National Service and Volunteers Are Transforming America." The book profiles real people who have performed national service and reveals the often profound impact these local heroes make in their efforts.
“I wrote this book to raise up the amazing work that service organizations like Admission Possible do every day,” Sagawa said.
Admission Possible works with low-income high school students to help them gain admission to college. This year, the organization is working with nearly 6200 low-income high school and college students across 23 high schools and 150 college campuses.
“We’re excited to be featured in Ms. Sagawa’s book in the company of some of the top service organizations in the nation,” said Admission Possible of Greater Milwaukee executive director Kate Lundeen. City Year, Teach for America, Habitat for Humanity, and Public Allies are also among the organizations profiled in the book.
“As we expand nationally to serve more high school students, we hope to engage even more volunteers in our efforts to improve college access,” Lundeen said.
