Grant Summary

$50,000 over 24 months to support approximately 50 students annually to achieve college readiness and post-secondary school success by providing a variety of services including: one-on-one college counseling; day and overnight college visits; SAT test preparation; life skills workshops on financial literacy, decision-making, conflict resolution; and information sessions for parents on college access. During the grant period, CAP will also host its first college fair to extend its reach to many youth who are not involved in the program but often visit the community center.
