    College Access Program

    The College Access Program provides opportunity. A college education not only opens the door towards economic success, it directly influences one’s health and socioeconomic status and the outcomes that future generations will achieve. The College Access Program empower teens in a city geography where few teens go to college to become first-generation college students. Teens can fulfill their potential and gain a better life with the College Access Program. For more details, click here or contact Fatima Scipio at fscipio@bgcmercer.org
