Act Six

Catalyzed in 2002 by the Northwest Leadership Foundation, which was frustrated that many Tacoma residents were not completing college, Act Six aims to better support emerging community leaders so they can be agents of change following graduation.  Program participants are provided full scholarships to faith- and social justice-based colleges, and receive support and leadership training before and during college to inspire and equip them to serve their home communities.  The program’s success has led to its expansion across the Northwest and Midwest regions to 13 partner colleges.  Since 2002, Act Six has provided leadership support and nearly $43 million in grants and scholarships to over 615 students.
