CAP's primary project goals for this three-year Educational Program focused on college access and readiness are to 1) expand successful college readiness programs to four public high schools and to gain new community organization partners; 2) build a sustainable, goal-oriented, and community-based volunteer program and develop human and monetary capital from local sources; and 3) increase the four-year college going rate by 10% and the overall college-going rate by 5% in our community in order to reduce poverty.
Summary of Position
The Program Development VISTA will develop the program materials, data management system, curriculum, online, and social networking components to ensure the programs are sustainable and cost-efficient. Working with partnering public high schools and nonprofit organizations, CAP's VISTA project builds on current curricula to design and implement in-class and after school drop-in one-to-one college readiness programs and workshops for 400 additional students per year at the end of a three year period while maintaining current service to 200 students per year (reaching a total of 600 students).
