College Access & Student Impact
November 11, 2013
The St. Louis Internship Program (SLIP) provides hope and opportunity for high school students in financial need through paid summer internships, intensive employability training, and year-round college and career planning, in partnership with businesses and community organizations.
College preparation is stressed throughout all SLIP activities
Establishing a college-going culture is a major goal
College access activities assist students with the application and financial aid process and familiarize students with college culture to maximize the potential for success
Field experiences on college campuses in St. Louis, Kansas City, and Springfield expand the students’ horizons and help them become more comfortable with the college environment
Over 850 students received services through CAGC since 2009
Collaboration is Key
