To help underwrite the cost of adding a Director of College Supports to lead a new “To and Through College” program aimed at getting their students into the right college, and giving them the supports they need to complete their degrees. NYC Outward Bound Schools has a network of 11 schools throughout the five boroughs that they operate in partnership with the NYC Department of Education. They will create 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. They will provide deeper supports while students are in their schools and maintain contact and provide supports for their alumni while they are in college to ensure they stay the course.
