Entrusted with fostering the tribe's leadership and future, Mr. Beltran said: "I fully support the broad use of myKlovr for tribal youth to help ensure the educational and career development of our young people.

Presently, Native American students are among the least likely to graduate from high school or college, according to the New York State Education Department and the University of the State of New York. Only 17 percent of American-Indian students continue their education post-high school, as compared with more than 60 percent of students nationally, according to Partnership with Native Americans.

In September, myKlovr representatives attended the United Pomo Nations Council in northern California to introduce the college counseling platform to tribal leaders of the Koi Nation and 16 other tribes which comprise the council; tribal leaders were ecstatic at myKlovr's one stop shop college solutions. According to Mr. Beltran – "They address a significant need and void among Native American youth in general, and in our community, in particular." MyKlovr is the first platform that uses artificial intelligence and predictive analytics to provide college-bound students in ninth grade and up, as well as their families, with full academic and financial support on their way to college admissions.

"As a tribal leader of the Koi Nation for the past 25 years, I appreciate how this platform can help our students become stronger college candidates and realize their dreams of higher education," said Beltran. "MyKlovr is the first and only company I have seen that has shown such dedicated interest in furthering the educational goals of our young people, and for that, we are all grateful."

MyKlovr's proprietary technology provides students and families with personalized, step-by-step guidance to prepare for a successful career and a fulfilling life. Its virtual counseling addresses the full spectrum of college admissions, including academics, professional preferences, extracurricular activities and more. The Company leverages artificial intelligence to connect every college-bound student with relevant resources such as courses, internships, tutors and college financing vehicles, among others.
