College Access is a one-stop shop for supporting high school students in grades 9th – 12th with post-secondary planning. Our program focuses on creating a culture that enhances exploration. These activities include but do not limit to college tours & trips; information sessions with colleges and other post-secondary options; workshops to complete college applications; support students with building a college list and essay; providing information on financial aid, scholarships, opportunity programs, and more. Overall, our aim is to ensure that each student has a clear attainable postgraduate plan before graduation whether that is college, enrolling in a certificate program, trade school, vocational school, military, gap year, or employment. We work to prepare our students through their transition in the best way possible to ensure overall success.
These services are available in-person at our Youth Opportunity Hub, 82-17 Parsons Blvd, Jamaica, NY 11432, Monday through Thursday 4pm – 5:30pm either 1:1 and/or in small groups with an advisor. Click here to make an appointment for College Access Open Hours
