Students helping Students is a program that partners with colleges and universities to inspire acts of kindness through many programs.

 

Volunteers can help first generation college bound students get off to a great start by providing  some of their necessities such as  bedding, toiletries and even a school t-shirt.  

Colleges and Universities  can utilize  Bake Back America’s programs as a resource for their students to give back. There are easy steps to take action to perform acts of kindness.

Story Behind the Program

The program was inspired by the incredible enthusiasm from students when they learned about their acceptance into college.  Their ‘bed party’ celebrations impacted Bake Back America to  partner with Colleges and Universities across the country to reach their student population that is in need. . As a result Students helping Students was designed to give volunteers the connection to to these students by collecting donations to purchase items while they were also preparing for such an exciting time.

What is a First-Generation Student?

A first-generation college student is a person whose parents never made it to four years of college. These students may have grown up in low income neighborhoods and lacked the resources necessary for their own education as well.
