BGCP SIGNATURE COLLEGE & CAREER READINESS COURSE

The college admissions process can be overwhelming for students and parents, especially in many Black communities. Students who attend low-income and underperforming schools are more likely to have limited access to high-quality resources, extracurricular activities, academic assistance, and in-school support. And, for families, there is sooo much to keep up with: a never-ending to-do list, applications, deadlines, fees, and essays. But what if I told you there was a way to make this process go more smoothly while empowering your teen to take more responsibility and actively participate in it? Would you be interested?
