College Paths

Location: Manhattan & Bronx Youth Center

College Paths is a comprehensive program that provides one-on-one support to help you prepare for a future at a college, vocational training program, or non-traditional secondary education program. Because you work with an individual college counselor, we create plans based on any background and help you follow through to success. 

Joining College Paths can help you figure out your graduation plans, determine which school is right for you, find scholarships and financial aid, prepare for life in college, and help support those through the transfer application process! We can also connect you to other programs at The Door to fulfill your non-academic needs like health case, counseling, legal support and more. 

Supports that will be available in 2022 are SAT, ACT, and other standardized exam prep! 

Meetings are being conducted via Zoom, in-person, or hybrid methods.
