Gap Year Opportunity: Learn more about College Possible from Christopher Prokosch ’19 and Carolyn Nuelle ’18
May 14 @ 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm
Learn more about College Possible from Christopher Prokosch ’19 and Carolyn Nuelle ’18 and Recruiter Pahoua Vang (domestic students only).
OUR MISSION College Possible is making college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support.
OUR COMMITMENT We are committed to providing the tools, strategies and support that students from low-income backgrounds need to navigate and overcome systemic barriers to college graduation.
OUR VISION We envision a day when the future of America’s children is determined solely by their talent, motivation and effort.
WHAT WE DO We provide a results-driven program that helps students from low income backgrounds get into college and persist through graduation. This programming is supported by recruiting, training and motivating recent college graduates who serve through AmeriCorps as near-peer coaches. Our work focuses on serving students from low-income backgrounds. This demographic intersects with many identities, including race, LGBTQIA communities, new immigrants, first-generation students, those who are undocumented, and many other underrepresented populations. We acknowledge this intersectionality while also explicitly focusing our expertise on serving students from low-income backgrounds who face barriers to college enrollment and graduation.
