Assisting Green Bay West High School students to plan for their future, become college-ready and fund the cost of college.
The Do Great Things Initiative (DGTI) allows Green Bay West students to envision a future without boundaries. We strive to eliminate the financial obstacle associated with getting a college degree. In doing so, we hope to tap into each student’s passion and focus on the ‘art of the possible’ versus focusing on a limited set of options based upon life circumstances.
Each one of us has to start out with developing his or her own definition of success. And when we have these specific expectations of ourselves, we’re more likely to live up to them. Ultimately, it’s not what you get or even what you give, it’s what you become.
Acceptance into a choice college takes determination and demands a strong work ethic. The mission of DGTI includes working with Green Bay West to provide students with tools and guidance, via the International Baccalaureate (IB) philosophy of learning to be fully prepared to continue their success with a college degree.
Be Bold. It’s the only place left uncrowded.
Our goal is to encourage alumni and business leaders to form scholarships that are granted to Green Bay West students that close any financial aid gap that exists after all aid (state, federal and college) is applied.
Go Forth and Set the World on Fire.
We help students with limited financial means gain entry into college and help them fund college by making sure they apply for as much aid as possible and utilize existing scholarships, allowing them to create a new dream of their success. In doing so, they can Do Great Things not only for themselves but have generational impacts on success.
