Post-Secondary Access School Community Sites

Moving into the 2017-18 school year, we plan to expand on the FAFSA/ORSAA work to include other factors that impact the high school and post-secondary transition. We are currently working with 8 school community sites to improve access to post-secondary outcomes, and we bring all of these teams together two-to-three times a year to share cross-site learnings to strengthen the work through collaboration. All Hands Raised’s on the ground work, including much of the work done at the sites below, is enhanced by the advocacy and alignment provided by the Post-Secondary Access Strategic Leadership Group.
