Metro Center College Prep Academy (CPA) Joined NYS Advocacy Day

On Tuesday, February 14, 2017, Metro Center CPA staff and students, along with NYU Upward Bound Program alum and recent SUNY Oneonta graduate, Ivan Alevante, participated in NYS Advocacy Day in Albany. Travel and arrangements were co-sponsored by CACNY Inc. Advocacy and Policy Committee and NYSACAC Government Relations Committee.

Ivan, a Metro Center UB Grad, has taken on the role of CPA Alum Leader. He is assisting staff in a special Alumni Follow up Component funded by the Meringoff Family Foundation to follow and track our program graduates. 

Advocacy Day was a success, as many College prep and College Success programs throughout NY State voiced their concerns about the continued need for these programs and financial aid.
