Yadira Saavedra, 17, is one of the more than 600 students from San Francisco who will start college with financial assistance from the Kindergarten to College, or K2C, savings program.

Her parents saved $2,200 in a universal children’s savings account, which helped change her perspective about getting a degree, she said.

“My family has always pushed me to go to college, but I felt bad,” Saavedra added. “I didn’t really know how much college cost; I just knew it was a lot of money.”
