Our application deadline has been extended to April 15, 2018 or until we reach capacity; whichever comes first.
Why college access? We are committed to offering college access programming because we believe every individual has a purpose to fulfill. For many, post-secondary education provides this opportunity, and early awareness about the process is critical.
Life is a journey filled with triumphs and challenges, and we want to offer building blocks to help youth successfully matriculate through high school, to college and graduation day!
