Coalition launches to expand and align college & career outreach in Kentucky
The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education, the Kentucky Department of Education, the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, and Kentucky Adult Education joined together in February 2015 to formally create the Kentucky College and Career Connections (Ky3C) Coalition.
Facilitated by GEAR UP Kentucky, the Coalition is a statewide network of outreach programs, proponents and practitioners that will seek to align, enhance, and expand college and career outreach statewide. Charter members include forty individuals representing more than 26 agencies, institutions, and organizations who are each focused on reaching out to students and families from every segment of the education pipeline.
As the Coalition develops and expands, the group hopes to see more consistency in outreach messages and increased awareness of available support resources, especially among Kentuckians in traditionally underrepresented and/or low-income communities.
