Online Registration for the 2017 Taking Steps Towards College Success is Now Closed. On Site Registration will be available on Sunday October 22rd at the “Registration” Booths.
Join us October 22nd as we rally and walk in support of Arizona's children and their ability to access a college education! The Be A Leader Foundation needs your help in creating a statewide movement that will inform and empower thousands of students and their families to become college bound.
Did you know that Arizona ranks 43rd in the Nation in percentage of high school graduates who go directly to college? For every 100 children in the 9th grade in Arizona.....
only 68 will graduate from high school 4 years later,
only 19 will enter a four year program within 1 year, and
only 9 will complete their bachelors degree within 6 years.
You can be an active participant in taking steps to improving the educational landscape of our state by participating in this year's event and motivating your peers to join the movement. Rally a team, collect pledges, and join us as we walk to promote higher education. Your support will help us positively impact the lives of Arizona students by empowering them to pursue higher education! The first 1,500 participants to check-in will receive a free t-shirt and tote bag!
