The goal of Equal Chance for Education is to provide an equal opportunity to achieve the American Dream through the completion of a college education.

Our scholars can chose any area of study that they wish. ECE requires that the scholars:

1) have a real-world career goal

2) understand the requirements needed to graduate 

3) understand any secondary degrees, certifications, or skills needed for the chosen career
