Early College and Career Access Programs
We believe that by creating a pipeline of early exposure, a strong college pathway can be laid to support the necessary awareness, inquiry and reflection needed to successfully prepare college-ready youth and families.

The Truck will be designed and outfitted to be used year-round to travel throughout communities bringing critical early college access resources to those whose access has been limited. College and Career Pathways on Wheels will travel to identified neighborhood sites including community centers, schools, museums, fairs, playgrounds, sporting events and out of school time programs; and offer a unique program to ensure the college and career conversation is active in all communities. Activities will include but not be limited to:
