2024 Connecting CBOs and Higher Ed – A College Forum and Fair

June 11, 2024 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Community-based organizations (CBOs) who work with low-income, historically underrepresented, and first-generation college students provide the support young people require to prepare for and explore their college options, gain admission to, thrive in, and graduate from college. Key to this work are strong relationships between CBOs and college and university representatives. 

In order to register for this event you need to create an account or first.

Co-sponsored by Barnard College, this unique in person event allows colleges/universities and the professional college prep staff of New York City CBOs to connect with each other to learn how to most effectively work together to help young people access, persist in, and graduate from college. 

The event starts with a discussion with panelists from higher education and CBO leaders about how to support college students best. Afterward, community-based educators and leaders can connect with college and university representatives at the fair.
