Hispanic Students: Pre-College Programs

A pre-college program is a no-cost or fee-based leadership or academic opportunity exclusively for high school students. While all pre-college programs are unique, generally these opportunities:
– Offer benefits including: leadership experience, creating a network of other motivated students, academic credit, an opportunity to enhance your resume, and more.
– Are offered by organizations big and small, including for-profit, nonprofit, and government organizations
– Range from a one-week experience to a long-term engagement beyond high school. – May be residential (requiring you to stay in a hotel or dorm) or local (allowing you to stay at home)
– Pre-college programs provide students an opportunity to develop key skills and a valuable network for college success. Additionally, some pre-college programs provide participants more benefits including: housing, transportation, mentoring, or scholarship funds.
