College & Career Program Completion Team

Nonprofits and colleges are working together as a team
to develop and support summer bridge experiences,
peer mentor/coaching services and affinity-based
learning communities. Data emerging from this group
shows that Latinx students at local community colleges
who participate in a summer bridge experience followed
by a small learning community during their first year are
more likely to stay in school for a second year. Using this
data as their guide, the Team is now exploring how
multiple types of supports, and the sequencing of those
supports, can help improve college completion outcomes.
