Why Appalachia?

Within Appalachian America lie beautiful rolling mountains, diverse ecosystems, and some of the most kind-hearted people in the country.

However, it is also a well known fact that the college attendance rates for Appalachian students are much lower than those for students in other areas of the US. The goal of the iBELIEVE Foundation is to provide students with the leadership, communication, and problem-solving skills that they need to be successful, and to also give them a better understanding of their personal strengths and weaknesses to enable them to become better students, leaders, and citizens.
