We are excited to launch the Making Waves Foundation blog! We created this blog to provide more insight into not only the work of Making Waves Foundation, but most importantly how our Wave-Makers at Making Waves Academy and the College and Alumni Program (CAP) continue to succeed academically, contribute to their communities, and thrive professionally. You’ll hear about how our alumni have gone on to soar in careers they love, why our donors support us, how our teachers and coaches share knowledge with their students, and reflections from our leadership on the education landscape. This blog also comes at an exciting time of growth: follow us to read the latest updates on the expansion construction at Making Waves Academy.

We welcome your feedback—please let us know what additional topics you’d like to read about. We want this blog to be a place of community in which you can learn more about advancing educational opportunities for college-bound, career-minded, historically underrepresented, and underserved youth.


Lauren Pitcher is Associate Director of Marketing & Communications at Making Waves Foundation.
