Programs & Services

  The Education & Training Department provides workshops in High Schools and Community Based Organizations that promote and encourage students to attend and complete college. The workshops are extracted from the department's College Prep Curriculum. Strategies discussed during the workshops help students identify the purpose, preparation and process necessary to make the transition from high school to college. The ultimate goal is for students to attend and complete college. This will lay the foundation for them to find gainful employment and successful careers.

The "Campaign for Academic Achievement" (CAA) is a mobilization and advocacy initiative aimed at organizing our community to improve public schools and advance the academic and social development of our young people.

The goal of the "Campaign for Academic Achievement" is to contribute to the academic growth and social development of African American students, and other students of color, by raising awareness in communities of color that Achievement Matters as well as build partnerships with families, schools and community organizations to support students' efforts of academic achievement. Our Education & Training Department implements the "Campaign for Academic Achievement" program by utilizing the nationally recognized, Project Ready 2.0 curriculum. The curriculum helps provide an ongoing framework to prepare students for post-secondary education by supplying students with information on academic achievement, social development, and college culture. Subject topics include SAT/ACT preparation, financial aid, college selection & application, essay writing, FAFSA preparation, career selection and goal setting.
