We provide college access to ALL WHEELS students, not just the highest performing. We believe every student deserves individualized support to explore, identify and reach their post-secondary goals.
- From 9th--11th grade, we facilitate college knowledge workshops, lead career exploration and professional mentoring events. We match students with extracurricular internships and enrichment activities. We lead college trips and host alumni college student interns to mentor current students.
- In 11th grade, we partner with WHEELS teachers to support students to develop personal statements, prepare for standardized tests, and develop robust college lists.
- In 12th grade, we provide individualized counseling and assistance to ensure each student applies to college, submits their FAFSA application and, ultimately, selects the best fit college. If interested, we help students identify an alternative certification or job readiness program. Our college list is incredibly diverse and reflects the wide range of options our students select.
- In the spring before and summer after graduation, our alumni work assists students with matriculating and preparing for their first semester of college.
