How many people are in a cohort?
All tracks allow 15-20 participants to allow for a personalized, comfortable environment that promotes growth for everyone. However, the Virtual track can accommodate for 20-25 participants.
Can I attend the session I feel to be pertinent?
In order to complete the program, participants must attend at least 4 out of 6 sessions to receive a certificate of completion in the English and Spanish tracks. For the College Next track, participants must attend 3 out of 4 sessions. For the Virtual track, participants must attend all 6 sessions. We highly encourage participants to attend all as they can so they may experience the content in full and be best prepared to take next steps in their lives.
