      ECMC presents Believing and Realizing the College Dream at Urban Ventures

      ECMC is pleased to provide a workshop review of our nationally recognized curricula “Believing the College Dream” and “Realizing the College Dream” for Urban Ventures Minneapolis. Few things are more frustrating than watching bright students with endless potential rule out college because they think it's out of reach. The curricula were created to provide tools to help educators increase the success rates of low income, first generation students. But access to higher education alone is not enough to provide educational opportunity to all when low-income, first-generation college-going students are the least likely to graduate.  Our curricula can help you reach those students and show them that college is an opportunity within their grasp.  “Believing the College Dream” helps 4th through 8th grade students and their families by:  Showing them that going to college is within their grasp Helping them believe in themselves and their ability to succeed in school Teaching them how to identify people they can trust to support their journey in education Giving families and communities tools, information and the college-bound attitude they need to support their children  “Realizing the College Dream” helps educators working with high school students to increase college transition rates with:  Hands-on activities and interactive workshops about planning and paying for college Experiences that challenge students to see themselves in college Eye-opening information about the economic value of college Highlights: Facilitation by professional trainers Innovative applications for curricula implementation Experiential, game-based techniques for teaching fundamentals Download a free curriculum guide HERE Visit our website  For questions, email or email
