Our Story

College & Career Lab (CCL) is a free, six-year, year-round academically rigorous and experientially rich postsecondary and career preparatory program offered to low-income and first-generation middle and high school students of color in the New York City public schooling system. CCL exposes youth, who often have a limited understanding of options, to a wide array of academic and career pathways by providing access to role models, expanding students' social capital, and delivering college lectures and activities with professionals that span across disciplines and industries.
