College Success for Opportunity Youth

UMass Club, Amherst Room, One Beacon Street, Boston

​Please join us for the release of a new report on expanding post-secondary pathways for opportunity youth.  You’ll learn about the challenges and opportunities from the perspectives of both students and community college leaders. We will also discuss system and policy recommendations that could make community college more navigable for opportunity youth and first generation college students.
