College/Trade School Readiness

College/Trade School Readiness

Our six-week Access to Higher Education project offers individual support to youth that wish to go the college route. One of our Higher Education Specialists provides each young person with an individual assessment to give them the tools they need to find the school that is right for them. We do this by helping with analyzing transcripts, planning for remaining high school goals, touring several local colleges, providing support with applications and pre-test requirement (ie:SAT’s) and more.
