United for Social Justice (USJ) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the DMV area whose mission is to enable more low-income and at-risk-first-generation college bound students access higher education. We believe that everyone who wants to pursue a higher education and works hard for it should be able to obtain a higher education. USJ has served hundreds of students and their families for almost a decade through the following three programs:
Road to College Workshops,
a Mentoring Program, and
a Scholarship Fund.
Additionally, every year USJ offers a picnic, a holiday party, and a soccer tournament for all USJ students and their parents to build a sense of family and a support system amongst each other and with our USJ alumni, our board of directors, mentors, and facilitators.
