A study by the Pell Institute says the Travelers education and mentoring program is a model for America’s businesses to help diversify the nation’s workforce and increase the number of students going on to post-secondary education.

The report, “Travelers EDGE: A Model on the Cutting Edge of Corporate College Access and Success Support” says the United States once had the largest percentage of college-educated citizens in the world. That is no longer the case. To re-emerge as a leader in college educated workforce by 2020, a goal laid out by President Obama, the country will need to increase the number of people with college degrees from 41.2 percent to 60 percent of people from age 25 to 64.
