Grant #27 Levy – Ready, Set, Prep
11/7/16

Ready Set Prep is a non-profit focused on helping Black, Hispanic, and low-income community college students maximize their educational and career opportunities. Our 26th grant will support a 25 student pilot of their new program, TransferPrep. TransferPrep is designed to eliminate the gap between the 81% of students who enroll with the intent to transfer to a four-year institution and the 3-8% of Black, Hispanic, and low-income students who complete this transfer by year three. TransferPrep will provide guidance on how to utilize school resources, map a course plan that maximizes credits available for transfer, select four to six target four-year schools, and engage with leadership opportunities on campus. Students who participate will be placed in a paid internship at the end of the semester and receive 20 hours of personalized advisory services. We are proud to support this pilot.
