Compass Year - Exploring My Future
The fourth C5 year is spent in exploration. Students explore colleges in the summer and continue their exploration while learning about entrepreneurship and selecting an important social issue to address that will become the subject of their ACT Now! Summit.
C5 Compass Experience
Participants plan and execute a seven day exploration of regional college and university campuses. Emphasis is on exploring what campuses offer as communities as well as learning about the academic programs available. The Road To College provides participants an opportunity to identify and plan for the steps they’ll need to take to prepare for the transition to college. Significant youth engagement in planning and leading the experience are also key components to the program’s effectiveness.
