Basta was founded in New York City as a direct-service organization for first-generation college graduates of color. Our animating vision was a world where a college degree provides equitable access to a choice-filled life. Our approach worked: 75% of Basta Fellows secure employment within 6 months. The Basta team reflects the diverse community we support—from our leadership to our interns. Our combined experiences in business and leadership across industries create the engine for Basta’s vision and impact.
