Yenko was born out of Margo Wright's frustration that while college enrollment rates have increased, college completion for all remains a challenging problem. Only 41% of U.S. adults over the age of 25 have a post-secondary credential (have earned an associate's or bachelor's degree).
Today's college students are typically juggling school, work and family while commuting to college and depend on financial aid to afford college. Their most scarce resources are time and money and yet, in trying to balance school and work, financial aid eligibility can be put at risk.
Yenko supports students' persistence by helping them keep their fingers on the pulse of what's important and as a result, achieve academic success that leads to graduation.
