College & Career Readiness

College and career readiness (CCR) is designed to help the Youth Exploring Science teens transition from high school to post-secondary opportunities – whether it be college or career. CCR refers to the content, concepts, knowledge and essential skills that teens must obtain to be successful in any and all future endeavors.­­ These methods include, but not limited to, reading, writing, communications, teamwork, critical thinking, problem-solving, academic development, career assessment, financial literacy, professional growth, youth development and more. CCR uses forums such as group classroom settings, networking events, and college and trade fairs. CCR also provides resume development workshops, and college and scholarship application assistance.
