Gateway to College National Network supports communities in building sustainable pathways for disconnected youth (former high school dropouts) to a high school diploma and a meaningful college credential. Our core strategy is to support and replicate the Gateway to College programs that operate at 41 colleges in 21 states around the country. We design and implement community-wide initiatives to ensure that disconnected youth are back on track, college and career ready. We advocate for improved policies and funding for opportunity youth by leading and collaborating with local and national coalitions. We inform our partners and the public about effective ways to serve our student population by conducting and disseminating original research on disconnected youth.
