The College Corp program focuses on preparing junior and senior high school Latinx students to access and succeed in college. In this program, we pair students with local professionals who become the students’ mentors for the length of the school year.

This program meets once a month on a Saturday, offering workshops where students and mentors learn about college applications, scholarships, and the college experience in general. Students also visit up to 4 colleges each academic year.

Students and mentors work together on an ongoing, weekly basis to ensure that students have a solid college-prep plan during their junior and senior years and are on track to submit admissions and scholarship applications.
