College Access with CCEL

Fordham’s Center for Community Engaged Learning stands uniquely positioned to engage Bronx and Manhattan middle schools and high schools in building pathways to postsecondary education. Our undergraduate student ambassadors partner with high schools and middle school student groups to support students to complete high school, facilitate the college application process, enhance soft skills to support an identity as college-bound individuals, and build student success tools to support students in college completion. We offer campus tours, bespoke workshops, and shadow days to our school and nonprofit partners, and every summer we host a five-week long immersive college access program called History Makers. Join us as a college access ambassador!
