Office of Opportunity and Outreach
The Community College of Rhode Island’s Office of Opportunity and Outreach and the Rhode Island Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner invites you to participate in our statewide "Preparing for College" presentations for the 2016-17 academic year! Our interactive approach targets middle and high school students with the goal of informing them about the benefits of planning for their future – either college or career.
We see this program as extremely beneficial to all students, not just those who plan to move on to a traditional postsecondary education. Many students that have a more immediate career focus may also benefit from exposure to how to prepare for entering the workforce and the training necessary to meet employer expectations.
Program sessions are typically 60 minutes long and include discussion time and Q&A. We tailor each presentation to the needs of your student body and provide grade-appropriate information. We will also provide the students with information and an e-mail address to contact us in case they have questions after the presentation.
We are scheduling presentations for the upcoming academic year. Presentation scheduling is flexible, and presentations are available during school hours and in the afternoon or evening.
If you are interested in a presentation or would like more information about the program, please contact Naglaa Gaafar at CCRI’s Opportunity and Outreach (401-825-2407) or at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
