New Gateways to College for Disconnected Youth

Commitment by

Gateway to College National Network

In 2013, Gateway to College National Network (GtCNN) committed to establishing two new Gateway to College (GtC) sites to re-engage disconnected youth, build multiple pathways for students to complete high school, and simultaneously work toward post-secondary credentials including vocational certificates, associates degrees and four-year degrees. GtC revolutionizes education for at-risk teens and high school dropouts ages 16 to 21. The average GtC student is nearly 18 years old with a GPA of 1.5, and having completed only 40% of the credits needed to graduate.
