For high schoolers, applying to college can be an exciting, if not overwhelming process. And for many young New Orleanians, the challenge can be even greater. Maybe you’re the first in your family to go to college…maybe college doesn’t seem like an option because of finances…maybe there’s no one to help, support, and encourage you through the process.
 
Local non-profit and non-partisan organization, The Young Leadership Council, is looking to help those particularly vulnerable young New Orleanians with its College Admissions Project (CAP). “The College Admissions Project helps high school seniors from New Orleans public schools gain access to higher education,” explained CAP. “We focus on low-income and/or first generation students. Given the student population enrolled in public high schools in New Orleans, we also predominantly work with students of color. The goal of CAP is to help students through the often confusing and time-consuming college admissions and enrollment processes, and help them make a successful transition from high school to college. In addition, we want to increase the college-going rate of students from our partner high schools and help the schools develop a college-going culture.”
