Our Team

Our Team

Ketáb is a group of community leaders and educators providing equal opportunities for all students to achieve academic success.  We are dedicated to serving our community and seeing students reach their full potentials. Our team members have impressive backgrounds in education and have worked with a variety of students throughout their careers. Our team members are sensitive to the needs of each individual student. Understanding that each students has a different goal and pursuit is the key to being able to provide the right answer for each teenager. This is why we provide free college application assistance to students. 

Our team works hard to promote student agency in order to encourage our students to plan, execute, and achieve their college goals. Since our volunteers have experienced the hurdles of applying to college, they provide students with honest, real-world feedback.  Ketáb volunteers who work with students include community leaders, college professors, academic tutors, teachers, and university students.
