College Access and Success
As an AmeriCorps *VISTA, my goal is not only to create the most enriching and fulfilling experience for Champlain students, but to connect those students with youth in the Burlington schools and get them excited about a college future. Though the majority of our partnerships take place in the Burlington Schools, we have recently partnered with community organizations to promote our goals of college access and success, including:
- The Boys and Girls Club of Burlington
- King Street Center
- The O'Brien Community Center
- and more!!!
Partnerships with these organizations include hosting tours on Champlain campus. These unique tour experiences allow Burlington area youth to ask Champlain College students questions about their college experience, including how to pay for college, what student clubs and activities are on campus, and what it takes be successful at Champlain.
