Who we are
FFLV’s mission is to inspire first-generation students and remove barriers to post-secondary access and post-secondary graduation.
Everything we do comes down to one powerful vision: That all students, regardless of their circumstances, will one day have the opportunity to attend college, graduate and actively participate in transforming their communities to create a better society.
To address the college access needs faced by students in southern Nevada, Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas adapted programming created by The Fulfillment Fund in Los Angeles; a model with a proven track record of success for over 40 years.
Since opening its doors in 2012, FFLV has served students in 9th–12th grade at partner schools in CCSD and beyond. After graduating our first cohort of students in 2016, the number of students we serve has grown from 315 to over 2,500. Each year over the last 6 years, an average of 98% of our students have graduated from high school and have been accepted to a two-year or four-year institution or trade school of their choice. During the 2020-2021 school year, FFLV awarded $430,000 in scholarships to scholars attending those institutions.
What We Do
Today, the Fulfillment Fund Las Vegas serves over 2500 high school students between two partner schools in Clark County. We offer forward-thinking, high quality, individualized programs geared toward predominantly low-income, first-generation students.
Using a combination of college access lessons, experiential learning opportunities, and individualized college counseling, we help our high school program participants acquire the tools they need to create a fulfilling future. Additionally, through post-secondary assistance including scholarships and advising, FFLV provides to-and-through support for our students.
By pairing this student-centered approach with family engagement, we increase the likelihood of our students’ success. Each step of the way, we help our future graduates find fulfillment by providing the access and information they need to persist through college successfully.
