College Bound Initiative

College Bound Initiative (CBI) is a comprehensive college access and success program for young women and men across 26 New York public high schools, currently impacting nearly 14,000 students. CBI empowers students to access higher education by placing a full-time, school-based director of college counseling (DCC) in high-need partner schools to deliver year-round expert college guidance services. CBI’s DCCs maximize students’ college awareness, access, and financial aid awards. CBI, operated by Student Leadership Network, works with every student to ensure they can obtain, and afford,

a college education.
