Help support college access in New York City

CARA’s peer leadership for college access programs are critical to the economic recovery of New York City. They:

  1. Help provide college access support to low-income students as they navigate an increasingly complex postsecondary landscape
  2. Bring desperately needed income into the households of low-income NYC families by employing first-generation high school and college students to provide that support
  3. Provide professional employment experience and career training to low-income, first-generation high school and college students that will help rebuild the economy of the city as we emerge from the pandemic.


CARA’s offices are housed at CUNY’s Graduate Center. Donations go to us through the Graduate Center Foundation.


Any amount helps keep CARA’s peer leadership programs going.

We hope that you will consider making a gift today.
