About Us

CREED was founded in 2010 with the intent to help young people with their college decision making process.  Our name, CREED, is symbolic of our motto: Believing in our Youth. 


Our mission and vision statements, along with a brief history help illuminate our hopes for our program's participants.  Click here to learn more about us.

"It is so hard to conceptualize that we have been on this journey since 2010. We are so grateful to all of our donors and stakeholders for continuing to believe in us and for sending us messages of support and guidance along the way.  Now, in this year of our 10th anniversary, we will maintain our focus on reading, readiness, retention, and research.


These specific foci drive our work and keep us from straying from our mission. As always, we need your support to continue the work with our students.  Your help is appreciated and necessary; your financial contributions help us stay true to our work and to our goal to keep our services to our students and families without costs".
