Over the course of more than 15 years, we have opened Gateway to College programs across the country. The launch of Gateway to College programs is supported by training and technical assistance from national network staff in order to ensure high-quality, sustainable programs and successful outcomes for students.

Communities planning to implement a new Gateway to College program engage with ATD through a formal discovery and planning process that ensures strong, sustainable partnerships with both K-12 and postsecondary partners, as well as other local stakeholders, such as workforce agencies and social service agencies. Operation of a Gateway to College program includes membership in a national network focused on ensuring all young people have an opportunity to complete high school and access meaningful postsecondary training. We would enjoy the opportunity to speak with you about whether a Gateway to College program or another of our strategies for helping vulnerable youth gain access to education would be a good fit for your community.
