Career Beginnings is a program of the Hartford Consortium for Higher Education. The mission of Career Beginnings is to increase the percentage of Hartford-area youth who graduate from high school and go on to college and fulfilling careers.
Since 1986, Career Beginnings has been working with Hartford-area high school students to help students get into college. On average, 92% of our graduates enroll in college directly out of high school. 85% of our students are members of underserved and underrepresented minority groups, and most are the first in the family to aspire to a college eduation. The program has three components: one-on-one advising, college-oriented workshops, and mentoring.
