College Awareness Month Resources: 2009 and 2008

To help counselors and college access providers, principals and administrators, teachers and school staff, and parents and caregivers ensure that more of DC’s young people can navigate the process of getting into and succeeding in college, Double the Numbers has created the College Awareness Month Resource and Activity Book. The workbook was created in 2008 and updated in 2009.

These materials are in no way exhaustive. The Double the Numbers Coalition invites you to adapt and create your own activities and resources to augment the current collection. Please e-mail us to share your work. We may include your work in next year’s resource guide or post it on this Web site to share with others engaged in this important effort.
