Mission

GTC is a community effort focusing on high school drop outs, at risk students, and scholarships for student mentors who help create awareness among their peers on college savings and the importance of helping each other succeed in graduating high school.

Working at McDonalds

may help to earn you college Credits

yes, its' true, the McDonalds training program provides a series of learning tools that could eventually be turned into college credit through a process known as theoretical evaluation, although it is through life experience that we learn, some colleges do not refer to learning theory behind working in real life as life experience credits, as certain training at McDonalds could earn a student as many as thirty credit hours or more toward an Associates degree.  Also, many corporations and small companies provide tuition reimbursement which you will always be grateful for, this is one reason why I created GTC, I am grateful to the entrepreneurs that I worked part time for, who afforded me college tuition reimbursement.

Founders 

2014 is the year of the GTC Founder, at many levels of giving, we have a unique opportunity to raise funds for this worthy cause.  Currently our efforts are all volunteer and more than 85% of program funds will go to our students.

Community

It takes a village....care and concern from the community is what makes the efforts of our working together to help create sound economic and viable support systems for students whose futures will be challenged in greater ways than ever before.

GTC MISSION

A large vision

the barriers that hinder potential students from entering college; and to provide support that empowers them to succeed.


To open the door to higher education for at risk high school drop outs in the Capital Region and beyond; to help them formulate a plan to get their HSE, high school equivalency and provide life skills guidance and options for best possible educational fit.  Not everyone is meant to go to college, and trades are becoming increasingly more important as our world changes to technology.  We still need plumbers, electricians and other such honorable professionals.
