Loraine has a conversation with Jen Weikert, Executive Director of College Possible Philadelphia which served 800 students during the 2016-2017, and is closing Pennsylvania’s degree divide and building a competitive workforce for the future. College Possible Philadelphia’s AmeriCorps coaches guide low-income students through all aspects of preparing for, applying to and enrolling in college and support students all the way through college graduation.
Students who are guided by College Possible have a 98 percent college admission rate and are four times more likely to graduate from college than their low-income peers. Loraine also speaks with Cabrini College student Charma Imani who credits College Possible for her academic success.
