Two education nonprofits, effective in their own rights, will join forces next year.
Philadelphia Futures and White-Williams Scholars, local college prep organizations, will become one organization in March.
"The unified organization will stand out among the landscape of other education-related organizations because of its
unique model of working intensely with students over several years, through high school and college," said Philadelphia Futures' president Madeline Sherry in a statement.
Philadelphia Futures and White-Williams Scholars will continue to run programs unique to each organization through the end of the school year, but will combine operations in the spring.
