Our Priorities

The Greater Trenton College Access Network (TCAN) is a collaboration among community-based organizations, schools, universities, and public institutions that serve the greater Trenton, NJ area. We seek to strengthen college-access and workforce development programming in support of students from underserved communities as they navigate the path to and through higher education and/or vocational training.  


2021-2022 Priorities

  • To create a “college and career planning” space for community-based organizations and local institutions at Trenton Central High School.

  • To create a collaborative development process for area-wide events for college planning and financial aid 

  • To create a series of shared tools and resources for the network, youth, and parents, including an events calendar, scholarship information, student development opportunities, and website to host this information

  • To create professional development opportunities for program staff (twice per year) that focus on the critical needs of the network
