PROBLEM STATEMENT

Post-secondary planning is a problem for our students because of financial constraints and a lack of direction.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Instill a post-secondary outlook in order to motivate students to plan for life after high school?

SOLUTION

Our solution is a service for our 9th and 10th grade students called the College Cafe designed to promote post-secondary planning and to strengthen the college going culture in our school. We are targeting this group because we see a gap for post-secondary preparation at the 9th and 10th grade levels.
