College & Career Readiness

Our college and career readiness portfolio creates economic opportunities for traditionally underrepresented students to pursue higher education by offering college scholarships, paid internships, certifications, career coaching and mentorship opportunities.  

 In response to our series of meetings with key stakeholders across the city, there was an overwhelming need for support for individuals who cannot attend college either by choice or by circumstance. Our certification program creates a clear career pathway for “opportunity youth” and for low-income adults without four-year degrees. Our training program will help beneficiaries gain certifications in the insurance industry and secure meaningful careers. 

We invite prospective students to learn more and apply to our programs
