The CREED College Readiness Program was founded with the idea that we could make a difference in young people's lives.  We do this by helping them determine and attain achievable higher education goals.  Since our organization was established in 2010, we have provided education consulting to students and their families in New York, Oklahoma, our home base in Pennsylvania, and Texas.


Our staff is made up entirely of volunteers, and CREED depends on its donors to fund the work we do with our students.  Our generous donors and potential stakeholders know that our work is important and understand that even a little help goes a long way.


That is why we are always excited to share information about the great work that we are doing with young people.  We want you to join us in our commitment to their success and hope you will do anything you can to support us.  Words of encouragement, volunteering a special skill, or providing financial support are all equally valuable to our efforts. 


Don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in helping us with our work.
