Keys to Degrees
Joan Demeules, Associate Director of Access and Success, received a $25,000 grant from Endicott College for the Keys to Degrees program. The most essential component of the Keys to Degrees model is full-time enrollment in education for both parent and child. Parents are enrolled in full-time college degree programs at the host institution, supporting the completion of a bachelor’s degree in a maximum time frame of 5 years. Simultaneously the students’ child(ren) maintain full-time enrollment in high quality early childhood education programs or public school and afterschool enrichment programs, as appropriate for the age of the child. Safe and affordable housing, food security, academic monitoring and year-round programming are other key components to the Keys to Degrees program.
