New York College Bound Corporation and College Bound Program. Annual Report 1967-1968.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY.
The New York City Board of Education's College Bound Program was established in 1967 to prepare deprived high school students for eventual college entrance. By 1968 the program had enrolled 6,000 students from 26 high schools to receive special assistance in their academic work. Almost 100 nearby colleges and universities have worked closely with the high schools by providing tutorial help, pre-admission counseling, classroom assistance, and by conducting campus tours and other activities. The first class will be ready for admission into college in September, 1970. The New York College Bound Corporation (NYCBC) is a consortium of primarily northeastern colleges and universities, the New York City public school system, the New York and Brooklyn diocesan school systems, and Aspira, Inc. (in behalf of severely disadvantaged students). NYCBC's principal function is the placement of all successful graduates of the College Bound (CB) program in member institutions, all of which have agreed not only to admit CB students but to provide them with financial aid and supplementary counseling and/or instruction when necessary. This first annual report of the NYCBC and the CB program covers the activities of the 2 groups between 1967 and 1968. (WM)
