Event description

Description

Please join us to to come together for our Community Conversation program about College Access. We all hope the best for our and our children's futures, and this includes a quality education. But here in the Bronx, only 17% of high school graduates are considered "college ready" and and only 11% of adults have completed a 4-year degree.

More information about college readiness can be found in this publication from the Bronx Borough President's Office: http://bronxboropres.nyc.gov/education/bx-achievement-pact/bx-ach-pact-final-white-paper.pdf

The question is, what can we do about the various obstacles that stand between us and the education we need for a good future? Please come to share your ideas and concerns with other people in the community.

This program is hosted in partnership with Susan's Place and Bronx Community College.

The Community Conversations is a library-wide series that engages neighborhood residents on the topics most important to you in an open discussion. This is not a lecture.
