Connect2Complete: Equitable Pathways
In partnership with Oregon Volunteers and the Corporation for National and Community Service, Campus Compact of Oregon's Connect2Complete AmeriCorps program seeks to help participating campuses tackle chronic absenteeism as well as deepen student engagement for continued success.
As part of the overarching philosophy of our organization, CCOR’s Connect2Complete Program seeks to develop partnerships with both formal educational institutions and culturally specific organizations. In this way, we design our programs to work in collaboration with community partners to address systemic inequities and barriers to educational access and success.
C2C/Equitable Pathways Members will develop, implement and expand K12 academic programs that increase attendance and student engagement through mentorship, family engagement, and critical community-responsive pedagogy. Additionally, our community college C2C Members will use peer mentorship and critical community-based learning to increase student engagement and support their enrolled students in developmental education courses to move toward graduation.
Our program focuses on low-income students, Black Indigenous and students of color, and students who are the first in their families to attend college (first-generation students). C2C Members will work with supervisors, school district attendance teams, and community college faculty and staff to create an environment at academic institutions that all students want to attend and are able to succeed.
- Develop interventions, activities, and programming to increase attendance rates and enhance school engagement for high priority students
- Raise attendance rates of 320 K12 Students to above 80%
- Increase engagement of 80 community college students through peer mentorship, service-learning, and academic interventions resulting in 5 students graduating with their associates degree
- Develop service projects to increase understanding and impact the communities in which students learn
- Leverage at least 150 volunteers to participate in community outreach, service projects, and family engagement activities on campuses
- Promote racial justice and equity in Oregon's educational institutions and their communities
