College Talent Search serves to increase the number of youth from first generation and or low income backgrounds who complete high school to enroll in the post secondary education institution of their choice.
The College Talent Search program identifies and assists individuals from under represented backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career and financial counseling to participants, and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to the post secondary school of their choice. College Talent Search also serves high school dropouts by encouraging them to reenter the education system and complete their education.
