Since its founding in 2006, College Access Plan (CAP) has worked tirelessly to remove barriers for low-income and first-generation students to attend and succeed in college. CAP’s programs at Pasadena’s public schools support more than 1,600 students annually, and include outreach to middle schools, families, and alumni.
With the shuttering of schools this spring and increased challenges for our communities, PUSD students, and their families, CAP's advocacy and investment in the next generation of leaders is critical. As budgets tighten and knowing that CAP’s funding need is greater than ever, we hope we can count on you as a member of the CAP family to support our year-end fundraising challenge.
CAP's ethos is to meet students where they are. Throughout the stay-at-home order, CAP has worked to maintain student relationships and respond to their needs, retooling CAP's signature college advisement curriculum for virtual use, and scenario planning for engaging with students and their families whether on campus or in their homes.
By supporting CAP now, you’re bolstering our mission to prepare underserved PUSD students to succeed in college, and investing in access for those who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. You're not only investing in the CAP community, you're investing in the diverse and diversely talented leaders of tomorrow.
