Partnership for After School Education

For community-based programs that work to support college prep and success, an important aspect of the work includes establishing relationships with higher education institutions.

A first step in helping colleges understand your program and distinguish it from others can be through a CBO Profile.  In this session participants will -  

  • Discuss why community-based organizations should create an organization profile targeted to colleges that highlights how they work with youth to get them to and through college 
  • Explore who should be involved in the final profile 
  • Review elements of sample profiles 
  • Begin to create an organization profile with a provided template 
  • Explore how the profile might be shared with higher education individuals and institutions. 

This session is intended for staff providing college access and success support to K-12 and college-age youth.
