College Readiness Workshops

In an effort to serve constituents and partners across the state, the College Access Initiative is able to deliver a variety of services, including College Readiness sessions, described below. Each session is designed to empower, educate, and equip students with information, resources and necessary skills for college readiness.

The sessions are interactive and can be condensed or expanded to accommodate any size group and any timeframe (30-45 minutes, 1-hour, 2-hours, etc.) Sessions can also be customized for specific events or needs.

Our services are available to schools at no cost.
