PEF envisions a Philadelphia where all young people have the skills, knowledge, opportunity, and access to the resources they need to succeed in college and careers.

A key aspect of PEF’s work is ensuring that every high school student in Philadelphia is supported in understanding and pursuing their options for a postsecondary academic journey, anchored in college and supported through workplace and career exposure. To support in this effort, PEF operates a diverse portfolio of offerings targeting students (College Access Program, PhillyGoes2College, Spark Philadelphia, Philadelphia Scholars Last Dollar Scholarship, Fostering College Readiness), teachers (McKinney Center for STEM Education, the Philadelphia Postsecondary Success Program), and the community (Education First Compact, Philadelphia STEM Ecosystem).  In 2017, PEF launched an education consulting practice that supports schools and nonprofits deepen student college and STEM related outcomes.
