On January 26, seniors and their families took part in an exciting scholarship award dinner at Jefferson Junior/Senior High School. These students were chosen for a Beyond Jeffco scholarship through the Jeffco Schools Foundation. These scholarships come from the state Colorado Opportunity Scholarship Initiative (COSI).
These scholarships are part of a larger collaboration of college and career partners working with current seniors at Jefferson. The goal of College Jumpstart is providing the necessary supports and resources to empower Jefferson High School graduates to take the next step in their education toward the goal of completing that track and attaining a solid career. This is the last step in the Jefferson Success Pathway and an important bridge from Jefferson to college or career.
As part of this College Jumpstart project, our partners on the College/Career Preparation Team are committed to offering the following supports this spring, summer and into the fall as students transition to the next opportunity:
- Job Placement
- Job Skill Education
We are excited to journey with these Jefferson seniors and connect them to their next pathway to college and career!
