Philadelphia Futures' Outreach Futures initiative brings our skills, expertise, resources and networks to the broader community. Working in collaboration with high schools and community-based organizations, through workshops, one-on-one counseling, print and digital media, Outreach Futures offers critically needed information about the college admissions and financial aid processes to Philadelphia students and their families who otherwise would not have access to these services.
Our programs focus on navigating the college admissions and financial aid processes. Outreach Futures workshops for students, college mentors, parents and high school counselors have covered topics such as college "fit," effective mentoring strategies, the college application process and financial aid. College retention services also are available through Outreach Futures.
Key services within our Outreach Futures initiative include:
- Step Up to College Resources – the print edition of the Step Up to College Guide, the Step Up to College Video Series and digital media tools are available on www.stepuptocollege.org
- High School and CBO Collaborative Relationships
- Consulting Services and Program Management
