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. CAMBA offers college access and career programs that help students stay on track for high school graduation, prepare for college life, build financial literacy skills, gain meaningful work experience through summer jobs and internships, and explore career opportunities.
