What is a clinic?
The College Prep and Connect Clinic is a workshop designed to condition you for the college experience. This includes subjects that range from SAT/ACT preparation to public speaking and how to present yourself with confidence and more. This clinic is what prepares you for the college prep process that you know exactly how to take full advantage of the resources that are available to you. You will learn about future planning, alternatives to reaching your future goals and how to increase your chances of having an overall positive and well thought out college experience.
What does this number represent in dekalb co.?
In Dekalb Co. approximately 40% of residents have a Bachelor's degree or higher. The ODDS are that this percentage will increase. Why? The assumption is that either people do not pursue continuing education as originally thought, or they do not finish the course. If this is true, there is much OPPORTUNITY to provide more ongoing support in the community for not only college prep but future planning. Check more amazing statistics here!
College Prep & Connect Clinic relies on the support of the community in order to encourage the motivation of the students who are in need. We partner with businesses and individuals who want to be accountable for this type of support (mainly voluntary). In establishing the community building aspect, this reinforces inside and outside of the classroom, the importance and support for the value of educational excellence. In understanding that progressive education extends beyond the school and home, Community Empowerment Foundation, Inc. uses these clinics to advocate for the stakeholders involved and is focused on building a cohesiveness that will help support the foundation that students need in order to be successful.
What makes the clinic unique?
The clinic is unique because unlike other college prep related networks, our goal is to prepare students for the overall college experience in order to minimize the transitional challenges that students can face (due to a lack of preparation). Students are presented with the opportunity to explore topics in an intimate setting that encourages dialogue, networking and application of what is currently being taught in their schools so that students find the connection with what they are currently learning and apply those things towards their future planning.
