On Point for College
College Access & Success
On Point for College’s College Access & Success Program informs older youth/young adults that college is possible; and then advises them how to enroll in, persist at and complete college. Services include outreach at 12 community centers, advisement about college and financial aid applications, campus tours, transportation, last dollar grants for housing deposits, textbooks, and basic needs, college orientations and follow-up advisement such as visits at college campuses. For 17 years, On Point has established caring relationships with our students, providing a support network, like no other organization in its breadth of outreach, advocacy, advisement and resolution concerning academic, financial, and personal challenges.
