At Palmer Scholars, we do not believe a 4-year degree is the only avenue to a successful life. We expose our Scholars to all educational and career pathways and give them the tools to choose the postsecondary program that best fits their strengths, whether that is a 2-year, 4-year, or apprenticeship program. We have several entry points for Scholars receiving our services:
Serving young adults from the time they are juniors in high school through postsecondary program completion. Scholars may choose to attend any postsecondary program, whether that be 2-year, 4-year, technical college or apprenticeship.
Connecting young adults of color with a free platform to engage with like-minded individuals based on shared background, interests, or affiliations. Palmer Connections offers academic and career guidance, opportunities for mentorship, and a wealth of resources.
Serving young adults of color between the ages of 16-24 who are disconnected from education or gainful employment and have an interest in learning how to take the next steps for their future.
