TOPS College Success

Tops College Success PRogram

Since 2011

Founded in 2011, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dane County TOPS College Success Program (TCSP) provides support services for AVID/TOPS high school seniors and graduates, including program-wide events, regular outreach to students, direct one-on-one coaching, and eligibility for other BGCDC opportunities. Coaches identify the barriers that college students face and connect students with the resources necessary to succeed. TCSP is an extension of the support offered to high school students through AVID/TOPS, and all AVID/TOPS graduates become TOPS Scholars supported by TCSP.

AVID/TOPS and TCSP seek to boost high school success, college readiness, college enrollment and post-secondary degree completion for Dane County students who are traditionally under-represented and under-resourced in higher education. These tend to be youth who are low-income, students of color, and/or the first in their family to attend college.
