College Advising Corps: Helping overworked high-school guidance counselors steer kids toward college

College Advising Corps is highlighted in this New York Times opinion piece by David Leonhardt that clearly states: "The evidence remains overwhelming: College is the single most reliable path to the middle class and beyond."

Ballmer Group recently gave a grant to enable College Advising Corps to expand its program of recent college graduates who advise low- and middle-income high school students on applying to two- and four-year colleges.

As Connie Ballmer is quoted in the column, the counselors are sending an implicit message to the students: “You can do this.”
