Last spring we met many of you and your students during our targeted citywide outreach campaign that included workshops in schools, GED programs, community-based organizations, and young adult workforce sites. This year ASAP will focus on strengthening relationships with counselors and advisors, through workshops and other activities. Our workshops are designed to update you on eligibility requirements, program benefits, and the steps to enroll in ASAP. We will also share resources to help you engage students in conversations about college and post-secondary planning.
