Washington, DC – The National Council for Community and Education Partnerships (“NCCEP”) announced that it is the new home for Career & College Clubs, a national program for helping students prepare for success in high school, college, and life.
“We are excited to bring Career & College Clubs into the NCCEP family,” said Ranjit Sidhu, NCCEP President and CEO. “Career & College Clubs is a well-respected, evidence-based solution for increasing college readiness and success that aligns perfectly to our mission. I’m looking forward to working with the program’s existing school and community partners, as well as introducing Career & College Clubs to our stakeholders.”
Career & College Clubs is a peer-to-peer intervention that provides students with the knowledge, tools, support, and confidence they need to plan for and assume responsibility for their futures. The program is targeted to schools and communities with large percentages of students living in poverty; historically, 76% of the students at Career & College Clubs school sites, on average, are eligible for Free and Reduced Price Meals. Through the 2015-2016 academic year, the program had been adopted by more than 300 schools, reaching 50,000+ students.
