We are looking to create a one-pager to recruit first-generation-to-college high school students to participate in our after school college access program, Passport to College.
Every year, 40 first-generation-to-college high school youth participate in the Passport to College program. They are Coached in a cohort model by a first-generation college graduate. Over the course of two years, they explore careers and interests, and complete the entire college application and financial aid process to ensure they can access college. We need an effective one pager that potential students can look at and in a glance get excited about how this program can change their future.
The Boston Higher Education Resource Center equips low-income, first-generation youth to enroll and thrive in higher education, break the grip of poverty, and transform their communities.
