First Generation Empowerment Program
Making higher education more accessible through student leadership & training
Students who are the first in their family to attend college can face challenges that other students may not. Ciro Scala, a Colin Powell School alum, helped create a program that assists first generation students in finding the resources, support, and enrichment they need during their first year in college and beyond. We want students to achieve academic success and reach their full potential.
Ciro’s story was recounted in a recent article in The New York Times.
This series of empowerment workshops will help you navigate issues related to your finances, academics, careers, and more. We want you to build a network and community to support you at the Colin Powell School and beyond.
