College & Career Readiness
As the above quote shows, college and career readiness has become a major focus in American education. Unfortunately, it is difficult for schools to meet all of these needs during the regular school day. After-school programs can provide opportunities for students to learn about college and career options, explore these options through hands on activities, and learn the skills required to be college and career ready.
Visit this page regularly for updated resources and tips that will assist in enhancing college and career readiness activities in after-school and out-of-school time programs.
