Join us as we thank our 2020 supporters, celebrate our 5th anniversary and the strength and success of Wily Scholars, and introduce new friends to the Wily Network. Relax as the evening unfolds with music and conversations led by our host, Meghan Irons, reporter for the Boston Globe’s Great Divide and lead writer for the Globe’s The Valedictorians Project.
Wily Scholars are promising students who are experiencing life challenges such as homelessness or foster care, or whose parents may be deceased, dealing with addiction, mental health issues, or incarceration.
• Wily works to ensure Scholars have the tools and networks necessary to thrive in four-year residential colleges.
• Wily strives to empower Scholars to transition successfully into post-college life and become vibrant members of their communities.
The Wily Network provides a critical safety net for these Scholars as they navigate college on their own. The Wily program offers weekly clinical coaching, financial assistance, community-building support, and networking opportunities to help them move from surviving to thriving.
