Going Places 2022

Wednesday, November 2, 2022

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library
901 G St NW Washington, DC 20001

Higher Achievement has the privilege of offering encouragement, support, and opportunities to hundreds of committed scholars during their formative middle school years. Your partnership fuels our mission to close the opportunity gap and ensure all students can live into their talents.

Going Places is a celebration of the dedication, passion, and talent of our scholars on their journey toward high school, and a recognition of the families, mentors, and community champions who support them along the way.

We will joyfully reunite in person this year at the newly renovated MLK Library; a virtual video premiere will be available online for those who are unable to join in person.
