College and Career Readiness (CCR) Advisors change life trajectories of young people. Recent studies confirm that low-income students need encouragement and accurate advice to move down the college and career readiness pathway. Session one lays the foundation for five pre-recorded sessions, culminating with a live closing session.

The opening session features a keynote speaker and other experts who share the latest research and best practices for how to help young people realize their postsecondary dreams. They explain the necessary building blocks for advisors in reaching students from diverse backgrounds and the tools to carry it out.
