The Tree Street College Prep Program serves local high school students and their families by helping them navigate the college admissions process from start to finish. Students receive education on a variety of subjects including developing useful study skills, SAT preparation, essay writing, and interview skills. The program also connects students and families to existing resources in the community by engaging in direct outreach to households in the neighborhood. Tree Street Youth offers incoming juniors and seniors the opportunity to participate in group visits to New England colleges and universities.
In our first year, the Tree Street College Preparation Program assisted in placing 18 students in colleges and universities. This is an extraordinary accomplishment considering that only 59% of adults age 18-24 living in the Tree Street communities have at least a high school diploma.
