CARA's mission is to ensure that first-generation college students, low-income students, and students of color have the knowledge and support necessary to enroll in and persist through college.
WHO WE ARE
CARA's work confronts the gap in post-secondary guidance faced by first-generation college students in New York City.
While New York City public high school students need opportunities to learn about college and career pathways, most of the city's public high schools and institutions of higher education are not structured to provide this assistance. CARA's programs, research, and policy work address these inequities. We work with high schools, community-based organizations, and higher education institutions to craft a tailored mix of programs to meet their students' needs.
