College and Career Readiness

There are many obstacles that students face as they transition from high school to pursue college or enter the workforce. We are committed to enhancing college access and career readiness for all students. Programs such as College Advising Corps, School Days, and Americorps VISTA work directly with students in local communities to expand their knowledge of educational and career opportunities. Whether students are experiencing a college visit, participating in an educational leadership program, or directly meeting with a college adviser, our staff works to provide them with the skills and credentials necessary to reach their goals.
