Ansonia-based College Access for All Kids, Inc. Receives Grants

ANSONIA - College Access for All Kids, Inc. is in its second year of providing Ansonia/Derby students an opportunity to visit and explore a college campus. The mission of the College Access program is to provide an experience that would motivate students to attend higher education after they graduate high school. This program is designed to provide ongoing mentorship and guidance especially to those first generation college students.
The Katharine Matthies Foundation, Bank of America, N.A, Trustee has partnered with us this year and granted us $3,500 to ensure campus trips in the Valley. The Valley Community Foundation has also granted $2,500 to College Access. First trip is scheduled on Oct. 16th to Western CT State University and the second trip is scheduled on Nov. 10th, to Sacred Heart University in Fairfield.
We thank the Katharine Matthies Foundation, Bank of America, N.A, Trustee and the Valley Community Foundation for providing these funds and giving Valley students an opportunity to "see" what they are actually working towards. 
For more information, contact John Bedosky 203-770-5304 or see our website at www.cafak.org
