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.
