Organizing For Change
SDCC Ambassador Program
SDCC Ambassadors help educate and inform friends, loved ones, and others by sharing resources and advocating through social media. They help others understand and enroll in the various repayment plans/programs available including SAVE, PSLF, Fresh Start, On Ramp, etc. SDCC supports Ambassadors by emailing resources, updates, and simple activities to do.
Free the Degree is a coalition that consists of student leaders representing over 3.1 million students (and counting!) whose goal is to push for access to debt-free post secondary education and to end the student debt crisis. Free the Degree has members from across the country and recently hosted its first summit in Riverside, CA.
Speaker's Bureau Program
Telling the story of the student debt crisis is one of the most powerful tools we have to creating change. We have built a community of passionate advocates ready to share their story with press, journalists, and others.
Borrower Outreach Program
Information is power and we feel it is our duty to inform the public about their rights. Whether it's in-person, on a webinar, or through our custom content, we are helping thousands of borrowers each year.
SDCC is a people-powered movement representing over 2 million supporters. Our name reflects our commitment to addressing what we believe to be a colossal unfolding disaster: the trillion-dollar student debt crisis.
Centering Borrower Voices
Over 45 million Americans owe more than $1.7 trillion in student loan debt. For millions of individuals and families, the higher education debt burden is crushing. Student debt means the delay of countless dreams—buying a house, starting a family, building a business.
