For renewed support for the Director of College Supports who is responsible for leading the “To and Through College” program aimed at getting their students into the right college, and giving them the supports they need to then complete their degrees. NYC Outward Bound Schools has a network of 11 expeditionary learning schools throughout the five boroughs that they operate in partnership with the NYC Department of Education. They are creating a network-wide program, providing increased supports and further developing their college counselors into a “Community of Practice” by getting them together regularly and using their collective voice to help shape the program. The Director, working collaboratively with the college counselors, is developing a comprehensive and sequenced 9th-12th grade college access curriculum. They will provide deeper supports while students are in their schools, and they will maintain contact and provide supports for their alumni while they are in college to ensure they stay the course.
