WITH FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE, CTN RECRUITS COLLEGES FOR NEW ACADEMIC YEAR
Too many students are missing out on the higher education they need and deserve. For more than a generation, policy-makers, administrators and educators have focused on closing the opportunity gap that separates low-income and minority students from their more privileged counterparts throughout the educational pipeline. By the time they reach college, only 12% of Latinos and 8% of African-American students are “college-ready” in all subject areas. Of all “underprepared” students, less than 10% will ultimately graduate with a certificate or a degree. The economic future of the state and the nation depends on providing true opportunity to students who have been historically overlooked and disadvantaged.
We are proud of our accomplishments but know that there is so much more to be done. In our efforts to continue this crucial work, we are actively recruiting new colleges for the 2021-2022 academic year with opportunities for funding from the Meadows Foundation.
At Catch the Next, we recognize that educational access and opportunity is the great equalizer and the hope for the future of our state and our nation. So, we strive to remove barriers for students, faculty, and staff to fulfill their educational goals and passions.
