Road Trips

Through our program TeenUp, we would like the teens in our program to find out what it’s like to attend college. We understand that in junior and senior years, when most students are focused on the college admissions process, it is often too late for many academically at-risk students to catch up.

Some may have dropped out of school, others have earned grades that are too poor to get them into college and many lacks the confidence to even dream about getting a
college degree.

So, with our college road trip, we created 5 major goals for the teens and they are as

  • understand the nature of college
  • recognize that a college education may be important to future success
  • gain positive perceptions and aspiration about college
  • prepare academically for college admission
  • set short-term and long-term goals
