May Community Spotlight
Friday - 4/19/2013, 12:55pm EDT
The Federal News Radio United Way Community Spotlight for May is DC-CAP.
Working in partnership with the District of Columbia Public and Public Charter School Systems, DC College Access Program (DC-CAP) is a private non-profit organization that provides counseling and financial assistance to students who might otherwise never have the opportunity to attend or graduate from college.
Since DC-CAP was founded in 1999, the number of DC public and public charter school students going to college has more than doubled - now on par with the national average of 62% -- and the number graduating from college has nearly tripled.
Fast Facts about DC-CAP
DC-CAP is unique from other college access programs around the country for two reasons:
1) Every DC public and public charter high school student is eligible for DC-CAP services regardless of academic history, grade point average, family income, citizenship status, ethnicity, or special education eligibility.
2) DC-CAP continues to support students for up to five years after high school graduation so that they have the best chance of completing their education.
Help DC-CAP give every DC public and public charter school student a chance at a college education. Learn more at ,www.dccap.org.
