Preparing for College with Diplomas 2 Degrees

To help fulfill the Club’s vision that every child will achieve academic success and develop a plan for their future, we invited our teens to attend the Diplomas 2 Degrees introductory workshop. D2D is the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s new college readiness program, and provides a range of services to guide Club members as they work toward high school graduation and prepare for post-secondary education and career success.

At the D2D workshop, our middle schoolers and teens explored their dreams of the future, and learned how college and other professional options can help them achieve those goals. They also had a chance to speak with Melissa Saulog, a college counselor from Archbishop Riordan High School, about the keys to academic success.

We’d like to thank San Francisco State University, Expressions College, CSU, Temple University and Boston University for sending us materials to distribute to our members.
