Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $403,015)

The College For Teens program represents a comprehensive youth development program that can be used as a national model for extended-day/extended-year programs to strengthen 'at-risk' public school students, their families, and the surrounding communities. Our youth development program model emphasizes three major components: an After-school tutorial and enrichment program (AASTEP); an eight week Summer College Residency Program (SUCCES); and a year-round Mentoring/Career Development and Life Skills Program (MCLS). The goal of the College for Teens program is to increase the number of low-income African American, minority and at-risk youth who successfully complete high school and are prepared to enter and succeed in college and high-skilled post secondary training.
