Costing a fraction of the public or private university price, rarely taking previous academic performance into account, and facilitating the transition into undergraduate learning, community college is the egalitarian approach to education. As a believer in upward socioeconomic mobility through higher education, Clementine wants to educate young people, specifically high school seniors, about the resources available to them and the financial benefits of choosing the 2-year community college route. Not only are these resources abundant, but they are underutilized and under-promoted. Clementine wants to empower young people through informational sessions at local high schools, where students can learn from college students who chose the community college route and are creating outstanding experiences for themselves.
