The College Readiness Badge-Enabled Playlists & Pathways project is from the Homewood Children’s Village with Homewood-Brushton YMCA, Higher Achievement, Operation Better Block, Junior Achievement, and Geneva College. Playlists and badges will reinforce the path to post-secondary success by laying out a clear route through high school and towards college or other post-secondary placements.
This pathway places students more firmly on the path to post-secondary success by laying out a clear route through high school and towards a college or other post-secondary placement. Youth who earn the “HCV Post-Secondary Readiness Badge” will have experienced a series of in-person and digital XPs that orient them to the college preparation and application process.
Youth will be directly connected with orgs in their community where they can pursue an extracurricular interest over an extended period of time – both fulfilling college application requirements for leadership experience and activities and promoting positive involvement in the community. This playlist streamlines access to related programs including: Higher Achievement, Operation Better Block’s Junior Green Corps, and the Y’s Lighthouse Project.
