NAAHP has teamed up with a well-known South Floridian, Mrs. Marlyn Paris-Lawson, to spearhead a college readiness program to serve students from underserved communities. Marlyn’s work has received local and federal accolades for successfully turning around the prospects of students in an underperforming school. Beyond enrolling into college, she believes that students need “key skills that will enable them to take on the rigor of a college course load, so that they don’t just thrive in college but succeed with timely graduation and career transition.”
NAAHP-College Readiness, Access & Retention Institute (CRARI) is a national pre-college enrichment program based on time-tested research. It is designed to prepare students of Haitian ancestry and other minority groups for the transition to college and the professional world through the removal of social and financial barriers.
