Days of College and Career Programming
Activities/Workshops for Students and Families
Partners Supporting our Scholars and Schools
CFES Brilliant Pathways will be celebrating a virtual early college and career awareness week, March 7-11.

The new format will allow scholars and families across the country to participate in our programming. Each day will be focused on a different theme supporting their goal of attending college and becoming career-ready. Our team of professionals will be helping make this happen from the CFES headquarters in rural Essex, NY and from key schools across the United States with the help of our CCR Advisors.
