Document Number: 10183Make Me a Match: Helping Low-Income and First-Generation Students Make Good College Choices - This policy brief describes the College Match Program, which was developed by MDRC in partnership with the Chicago Public Schools to help low-income and first-generation students choose the right college. College Match places young adult advisers in high schools to help moderately- to high-achieving students who are prepared for college but need advice and support with making their college decisions. The policy brief details encouraging early findings from a pilot of this program in three Chicago high schools. It concludes with a discussion of issues related to further expansion, modification, and testing of the model. (MDRC, April 2012)...
