The Nurturing Wellness Group Foundation's primary focus is to help students and young adults overcome barriers that prevent or delay success in school and life by providing them access to a holistic support system.
The Nurturing Wellness Group Foundation's CEO Terri Brinston, Program Director, Carla Saunders, and WhatNow's Managing Director, Kayla Mason, provides a message for Parents, Grandparents, and Young Adults on available options after graduating from high school and college. We share how our WhatNow platform supports young people understand their available options. The team shares that college is not for everyone and that completion rates vary widely along racial and ethnic lines, with black and Hispanic students earning credentials at a much lower rate than white and Asian students do, according to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center.
White and Asian students completed their programs at similar rates - 62 percent and 63.2 percent, respectively -- while Hispanic and black students graduated at rates of 45.8 percent and 38 percent, respectively.
