Youth Leaders serve as peer counselors to increase post-secondary awareness, accessibility and knowledge. YL's work one-on-one on the college process with an assigned case load of seniors. Along with helping seniors complete their process, YL's go into classrooms once a month and facilitate workshops with 9th and 10th grade around college access. Since 2005, SSC's have worked with students and successfully provide unlimited resources.
Good Shepherd Services (GSS) partners with College Access: Research and Action (CARA) to bring college access to all grades with a Student Success Center (SSC) in the school. The Student Success Center is a youth-led college access center.
