College Jumpstart: A Path to College Success!

May 3, 2024

We’re excited to introduce College Jumpstart! This program is open to any Durham County senior who will be attending a 2-year or 4-year college/university in the fall of 2024, and who is a member of a group that is historically underrepresented in higher education: first-generation to college, from a low-income household, or a member of an underrepresented ethnic/racial identity. College Jumpstart is our citywide initiative to help reduce summer melt and to provide invaluable resources and support for a smooth transition into college life.

We believe that every student deserves access to the resources and support they need to succeed, and we’re committed to making that a reality.

Here’s what you can expect from College Jumpstart:

Registration is currently underway and programming will officially begin with our College Jumpstart Kick-off on May 10th from 2:30-4:00 pm. If you work with seniors who could benefit from College Jumpstart, please don’t hesitate to share this information with them. Encourage them to sign up and take advantage of this incredible opportunity. Space is not limited!


We will maintain a rolling registration deadline through the spring and summer, we ask that interested students submit the interest form ASAP so they may take full advantage of the program.
