Student Body of America Association, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2011, is organized and operated exclusively for educational purposes.
Our mission is to provide easily accessible information and resources to educate and support students in achieving an education, and to guide students to apply their knowledge and skills to make the best decisions on an individual and societal basis.
Our vision aspires to a reality in which everyone with hopes and dreams in America has the opportunity to realize their full potential. We are dedicated to providing education and guidance to empower students to pursue their goals and the American Dream, which will benefit our communities and nation as well. The result would be a stronger and more educated American public, and hopefully one day a better U.S. economy and job market.
We believe that people who are fortunate to receive an education should pay it forward for the benefit of their communities, the nation and the world.
Project Pay It Forward is a documentary film about the concept of paying it forward and illustrates how this belief has been successfully implemented into the Student Body of America Association’s flagship programs.

The Fallen American Dream is a documentary on America’s challenges with college affordability and its declining job market during a time of national crisis and global change. We produced this film to increase the awareness and educate the public of the widespread difficulties facing students today, including the high cost of college education and lack of opportunities in the job market that have resulted in the $1 trillion student debt crisis.
September 11, 2013–In late 2011, student loan debt reached a catastrophic $1 trillion in America and continued to rise, as did countless headlines broadcasting the latest depressing milestones and Congressional actions (or lack thereof). These articles never fail to grab attention with alarming statistics that announce the average debt amounts, number of delinquencies and percentage of Generation Y unemployed and living at home as they struggle to make student loan payments.
But beyond the copious amounts of data gathered by government and crunched by organizations, there has been a very personal approach to this topic, showing the human faces behind the statistics. Many student loan borrowers want to share their stories and publish personal narratives in online newspapers and blogs. Unlike the people who quietly left their homes during the foreclosure crisis, many people with student debt want to be heard. Of course, these are very different scenarios. People can walk away from their homes. They can’t walk away from student loans, though, not even in bankruptcy.
Student Body of America Association (SBAA), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, produced a documentary film about this country’s challenges with the high cost of college education and student loan debt that escalated to devastating heights after the recession ravaged the job market. Titled The Fallen American Dream, the documentary focuses on the perspective of student loan borrowers whose lives are so affected by this debt that the promise of the American Dream is called into question by a generation.
