Since 1991 The Immokalee Foundation has been helping children and young adults to change the course of their lives through the support of mentors, donors and volunteers. According to the foundation 100% of participating high school students graduate, 100% go on to postsecondary education at universities, colleges, or technical programs, and 91% complete postsecondary education. We learn more about its programs, especially in the time of COVID-19, by talking with Melissa C. Phillips, Vice President of Philanthropy.
