College Access & Lifeskills Initiative

The College Access & Life-Skills Initiative (CALI) continues the tradition of enriching and empowering low income, first generation, and underserved students. CALI utilizes EYM’s holistic approach, preparing students for post-secondary life in higher education and beyond, expanding and leveraging existing community relationships and expertise. CALI provides participants with the necessary tools, skillsets and support needed to matriculate through four-year Colleges and Universities.

CALI (College Access and Life Skills Initiative) prepares students and parents for colleges as they transition from middle school to college, providing a framework that tracks and monitors classroom performance, increase parents/guardians engagement, student achievement, community networking and ultimately college preparation and application process where everyone takes responsibility or accountability with passion, values, and scalable/measurable results.
