Through scaffolded activities, The Post-Secondary Success Project Plan & Vision help to build a foundation for a mentee's college and career readiness. This portfolio of work consists of broad-based knowledge and skills that graduates can put to good use regardless of your specific educational or career objectives. College and career readiness ensures that students are prepared for college-level courses upon matriculation, and/or for jobs that earn family-sustaining wages. The skills should include whatever skills are required to succeed in credit-bearing courses at the post-secondary level, since all students should be prepared for post-secondary education or training whether they pursue degrees or workforce training.
