KIPP Through College counselors visit students at their college campuses and keep in constant communication to discuss academic progress, financial aid, social pressures, and internship opportunities. KTC also hosts events during holidays and breaks. By intentionally building relationships, KTC is able to help address specific issues, steer students towards appropriate resources, and empower students to advocate for themselves.
If you are a KIPP San Antonio alumni, we would love for you to stay connected and take advantage of the great opportunities available to our college-aged KIPPsters! Fill out our Alumni Questionnaire and we’ll reach out to you very soon.
College Connections & Ambassadors
College Connections is a program designed to ensure that KIPP alumni are making connections with each other on college campuses across the country. Connecting our growing network of alumni in college is a critical and powerful tool in the effort to increase college persistence and graduation rates. KIPP seeks to build supportive cohorts of our students on college campuses so they can work together to persist in and graduate from college. College Connections works to:
- Identify other KIPP alumni on campus and build personal networks
- Appoint Ambassadors who plan events, host workshops, maintain college communities, and visit with KIPP alumni
- Provide support for KIPP alumni in overcoming academic, social, and emotional challenges in college
- Collaborate with other KTC regions in supporting students across the network
As the number of KIPP alumni in college continues to grow rapidly every year, building peer-to-peer support and maintaining strong communities will provide students with additional reinforcement on their climb through college.
