"The partnership that Learning for Life has had with College Visions has been fruitful for L4L because at the end of the day, CV is about the best interest of the student! CV has shared their expertise of working with high school students and we have shared our college culture and policy expertise. The partnership has provided allies for ALL RIC students which enables the student to persist."
LaTanya Monteiro, Educational Support Coordinator for Learning for Life at RIC
The CV Lab leverages College Visions’ expertise to train educators to practice effective college access strategies and guide first-gen students on the path to a college degree.
The CV Lab produces a powerful ripple effect, enabling CV’s model to reach thousands of first-gen youth across Rhode Island and beyond. In 2014-15 alone, College Visions trained more than 50 educators from organizations across Southern New England. The Lab provides support on topics including:
- Identification of match colleges for low-income, first-generation students
- Admissions advocacy and building relationships with colleges
- FAFSA completion and affordability
- Proactive advising for college success
