Postsecondary Access, Support & Success

Our mission is to foster the development and implementation of collaborative partnerships among and between colleges, schools, community-based organizations, parents, students, business, industry and government to ensure that all students in New York State, especially those in programs administered by the New York State Education Department, have every opportunity to be successful learners in an environment that honors the uniqueness of each individual.

Through these programs, New York State provides programming and supportive services to at-risk youth in more than 500 elementary, middle and secondary schools and the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) throughout New York State.

Collaborative relationships are developed with more than 80 institutions of Higher Education; 300 Community-Based Organizations; and hundreds of businesses and industries.
