Pathways to College, a nonprofit after-school program in New Jersey, is now the recipient of a $5 million grant from the Oprah Winfrey Charitable Foundation.

The program which was founded in 1994 by Judith Griffin is dedicated to helping those in undeserved communities find their pathway to college. While building a network of program sites around the country, the nonprofit caught the attention of Oprah Winfrey herself.

“I celebrate and honor the work Pathways to College does in securing futures for young people who want to go to college,” said Oprah Winfrey in a press statement. “I am proud to sponsor and support all of  these young people and their dreams for a better life through education.”

Pathways to College has to date served over 4,000 students with 100 percent of them being admitted to college and 68 percent of them graduating. The funds donated by Winfrey will be used to further Pathways’ mission in providing support for even more students in low resourced school districts.
