Horizons for Youth helps students not only prepare for college but also stay on track until they earn a college degree.

The key to graduating from college is a reliable, consistent support network. Given the long-term, trusting relationships we have with our students by the time they enter college, Horizons for Youth is uniquely positioned to offer this support network.

To address the needs of our college students, Horizons for Youth assists with:

Course selection and major mapping
Often times students in the proper courses to match their academic ability or placed in classes they do not need. This could result in paying for classes they don’t need or prevent on time graduation. We make sure they are registered for classes that align with their course curriculum.

Financial aid applications and renewals
We ensure that financial aid applications are completed accurately and on time as colleges will not review students’ applications or award letters.

Money management and budgeting
Unexpected fees and materials can create financial burdens for many students. We assist students in managing their financial aid to ensure they do not receive financial holds on their accounts that prevent them from registering for courses or graduating.

Social-emotional support
College can be a difficult transition for most students. We help students identify on-campus programs that can be another layer of support in addition to Horizons for Youth.
