To support the Coordinator of High School and College Planning for NAC’s College Bound Program (“CBP”) which provides individualized high school and college bound services to medically-fragile youth who face additional barriers to education and their siblings. Through college-focused counseling, educational advocacy, skills workshops, support groups, and mentoring, as well as ongoing support to young adults already in college, the CBP expands opportunities for these youth, and prepares them for a successful transition to adulthood. With the individualized attention and support that NAC provides, students at-risk of being held back are promoted and students at-risk of dropping out graduate from high school. The program offers the knowledge, support, and confidence-building that these young people need to navigate the college preparation and application process, and to succeed at school.
