The College Prep Roundtable Forum: Incorporating National Initiatives at a Local Level

The Forum will connect national models and initiatives to the day to day toolbox of college access individuals. This year’s theme is “National Initiatives, Local Implementation” and will enable attendees to connect with what’s happening nationally and align their work accordingly. How do you create and improve programming that best serves you and your community? What does the data show? How can you get out of your programmatic silo and tap into national initiatives and movements? This year’s Forum will provide a number of opportunities for participants to address these questions for themselves and their programs.
