P4K’s college access program is the final stepping stone on our pathway of “kindergarten to careers” programming. It is divided into two phases which include 1. post-secondary prep and 2. post-secondary support. Through this programming, our ultimate goals are to help all P4K students access some type of post-secondary education, ensure they complete their degree/certificate programs and overcome barriers to their academic success.
Phase 1: Post-Secondary Prep (Grades 11 & 12)
P4K Post-Secondary Prep provides critical services to 11th and 12th grade students who successfully completed the P4K high school group mentoring program. We ensure these students have continued contact with P4K staff, they are aware of their post-secondary options, and that they have the necessary materials and know-how to apply to a post-secondary institution. Provided services include:
- Individual student case management and priority referrals to P4K’s partner programs such as College Possible, Avenue Scholars, Teammates and Boys and Girls Club of Omaha
- ACT preparation and financial aid workshops and assistance
- College tours and exposure to various post-secondary and career options
- College application assistance, scholarship support, and letters of recommendation from P4K staff
Phase 2: Post-Secondary Support (P4K College Scholarship Recipients)
P4K Post-Secondary Support provides P4K college scholarship recipients with the resources and encouragement they need to be successful in their post-secondary endeavors. Provided services include:
Summer Bridge Seminar
Peer Mentoring Support
Academic Support & Resources
Job Readiness & Job Shadowing
Career Exploration & Job Placement
