College Access Program

College Access Program

A college education opens up doors, including increased job opportunities, valuable life experiences, and connections. Our College Access Program (CAP) assists local students in exploring their post-secondary education options. In addition, we empower program participants to lead and become change agents in their community.


College Access Program runs all year to support students  as they:

     -  Explore the types of colleges that fit their needs and preferences

     -  Learn about the College Admission Process

     -  Complete college essays and develop references

     -  Offer guidance for financial aid and Scholarship applications


BGC Staff work with participants to develop their unique  post-secondary pathway plans. Each student's plan has tasks for them to complete based on their grade level. The program provides a guide for college readiness and results in greater access to colleges and post-secondary opportunities.


some activities include:

  • Tours of local colleges and businesses
  • College & Career Fair
  • Workshops
  • Classroom instruction
  • 1:1 Mentoring
