Program Description

The Blueprints College Access Initiative is a college access program sponsored by Alabama Possible. It connects 21st century high school students and their families with resources and relationships so that they are equipped to graduate from high school college and career ready. Blueprints was founded in 2009 by then University of Alabama student, Nicole Bohannon.

Blueprints utilizes a �?�¢??near peer�?�¢?? mentoring model by engaging college students as mentors for high school students. College students demystify the college-going process and connect high school students with an information-rich network of supportive coaches who can help them make structured decisions and navigate the college admissions process.
