This grant supported College Possible’ s launch in Philadelphia. College Possible helps low-income youth prepare for and earn college admission, stay in college and graduate ready for the workforce. Their unique, low-cost model uses AmeriCorps coaches to deliver services, allowing them to reach a significant number of students each year and follow them from high school through college.
Update: College Possible Philadelphia will start its first full school year in fall 2014 with partnerships at four area high schools: Upper Darby High School, George Washington High School, Parkway Center City High School and West Philadelphia High School. Seventy-five students at each school will make up College Possible Philadelphia’s first cohort.
