Realizing the College Dream
The Realizing the College Dream (RTCD) curriculum (sponsored by the ECMC Foundation) guides teachers, counselors and youth-development specialists to increase expectations of attending college by low-income and first generation college students and their families. The 9 workshops/lessons are designed to be flexible, from 30 to 90 minutes, geared for middle and high school students, provide them with an opportunity to think of themselves as future college students, and to debunk the myth that they can’t afford college. Materials for families on financial aid and basic information on college is also included. Click here to Download the guide.
