The 4th Annual CBI Celebration - May 28, 2014
On May 28, 2014 Young Women’s Leadership Network (YWLN) will hold our 4th annual CollegeBound Initiative (CBI) Celebration. We are so grateful to the three honorees, who are dedicated to empowering youth to succeed.
- Ken and Margie Blanchard, Co-Founders of The Ken Blanchard Companies
- Victor Cruz, Wide Receiver, New York Giants
- Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan, Actors, writers, and philanthropists
These honorees join a distinguised group of philanthropists and educators, listed below, who are committed to making the dream of college a reality for low-income students.
The CBI Celebration offers an opportunity for friends of YWLN to celebrate the achievements of our students. Since 2001, CBI has helped more than 5,500 low-income students achieve their college dream and has generated more than $86 million in scholarships and financial aid. CBI participants graduating from our partner schools achieve four-year college degrees at more than double the rate of their low-income, minority peers!

We look forward to celebrating our students with you on May 28, 2014!
