  • Overview & Benefits

    Bottom Line is dedicated to helping first-generation students from low-income backgrounds get into college, graduate from college, and go far in life.  Our vision is to dramatically transform urban communities by producing thousands of new career-ready college graduates.


    As one of the first college support organizations to focus on college completion, Bottom Line now produces best-in-class college graduation rates that eliminate the significant gap between first generation students from low-income backgrounds and their wealthier peers. We operate regional programs in Massachusetts, where we were founded in 1997, New York City and Chicago that collectively serve over 7,000 students. We plan to open two new sites in major urban areas and increase our footprint to over 10,000 students by 2020.


    Bottom Line focuses on students who have the desire and potential to earn a degree, but lack the support structures necessary to navigate the college application process, make a responsible school choice, succeed in college, and prepare for a meaningful career.


    Over the last 20 years, Bottom Line has developed a proven and proactive long-term, high-touch, high impact model.  Full-time, trained and specialized advisors leverage our DEAL model which addresses the four key areas that are most likely to lead to college success: Degree, Employability, Affordability, and Life.  Our relationship and results focused approach helps our students change their lives by gaining economic mobility through college selection, graduation, and career-readiness.


    At Bottom Line, we also have a strong commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.  We aim to attract qualified candidates who hold these same values, and help us further recognize and celebrate the diversity among us. 


    When you join Bottom Line, you will find a rewarding, fast-paced, results-oriented environment. We build strong relationships with our students and with each other.
