Services include trips to colleges; financial aid and college application counseling; college awareness workshops; college persistence support; scholarship application support; financial literacy workshops; college nights for parents; academic tutoring; SAT/ACT prep and registration; college course registration; transfer support and personal advising, including advising from our youth leaders, current students who counsel and educate their peers to help them on the road to college.
