College Access Initiative

Tulare County College Access Initiative focuses on increasing the number of students who graduate from high school and who are prepared to succeed in post-secondary education.

We know that education is important to determining future achievement and children who graduate from high school tend to be more successful.

The Tulare County College Access Initiative is a collaborative project of organizations dedicated to enhancing the college going rate of Tulare County students and young adults. The primary goal is to develop expertise and resources that enhance college access services and programs in the identified communities. The initiative strives to support students, parents, and schools to create a "college going culture," by providing ongoing influence, advocacy, evaluation and active guidance.

Long-Term Outcomes

  • Increased commitment to high school graduation and preparation for college.
  • Increased awareness of college and career opportunities.
  • Improved social skills and interpersonal behavior.
