Planning, Partnering and Fundraising: 3 Key Elements to Launching and Sustaining an Early Awareness Program
2012 OASFAA/OCAN Conference (2012)

Abstract
In 2008, the non-profit college access organization, A Call to College, researched the feasibility of extending their services to elementary and middle school students in their partner district, Newark City Schools. This investigation led to a phased, 4-year process to build the PEAK (Providing Early Awareness and Knowledge) Program. PEAK currently provides activity-based programming and specially designed lesson plans for every 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th grader in the district - over 2000 students from 82 classrooms in 11 different buildings. This session will cover the key planning elements, critical partnerships, staffing strategies, and short- and long-term funding action plan that helped make this ambitious project success. In addition, the structure, programming elements and goals of PEAK will be briefly covered.
