The Chick-fil-A Foundation helps serve our communities by educating and developing young people to build a positive legacy and become all they were created to be.
Has the need for education and financial literacy been more evident and widespread than right now. Today, we stand at a crossroads where responsibility and opportunity meet. And we believe that together, we can empower our young people to be the change their communities need by reaching their full potential each and every day.
According to U.S. census reports, approximately 1.2 Million students drop out of high school each year in the United States. That’s one student every 26 seconds.
Only 49% of students in the city of Atlanta will graduate high school. Studies show that high school dropouts are twice as likely to be unemployed, and more than three times likely to live below the poverty line.
Most high school dropouts leave school needing fewer than two years to complete their high school education, and more than 70% are students who were on track to succeed academically.
