Career & College Prep

CAMBA has three key goals to reach by 2020, including helping 1,000 low-income young people graduate high school and go to college.  Our target year is intentional; by 2020, 65% of jobs will require a two- or four-year degree, yet only 46% of low-income high school students enroll in college.
