Greenbelt, MD. On June 7, 2019, Prince George’s County’s Office of the County Executive announced that College and Career Pathways, Inc. (CCP) was a recipient of the FY2019 Community Partnership Grant Award. The award, totaling $49,500, will support the organization’s High School Scholars Program at Northwestern High School, where last year, the nonprofit served 115 students in the CCP program, and an additional 50 non-CCP students through outreach and community partnerships.
“We are so grateful for the support that County Executive Angela Alsobrooks and her Office have shown for CCP’s efforts to increase educational and vocational opportunities for the County’s youth. We look forward to a long and productive partnership with Prince George’s County.” – Dr. Nichole H. Nicolas, CCP Founder and Executive Director.
Founded in 2008, CCP’s mission is to facilitate on-time high school graduation and postsecondary access and success, for students from historically under-served populations, while increasing their awareness of the wide range of educational and career opportunities available to them. CCP accomplishes its mission through three program components: High School Scholars, College Stars, and the CCP Master’s (for students transitioning from a postsecondary program to the world of work). The organization’s High School Scholars Program was designed to provide intensive, on-site academic support, college readiness, and career development programming to students in Grades 9-12 in Prince George’s County. The program’s vision is to ensure students graduate on time with a solid plan for achieving their educational and vocational goals. Last year, 100% of the students who completed the CCP program graduated from high school on time, and 93% went on to enroll in a postsecondary program.
