This project will extend the evaluation for the Life after High School Program. The program was designed to help grade twelve students in BC apply for post-secondary education by removing non-financial barriers. Over three sessions, students learned about the benefits of post-secondary education, how to apply for admission and financial aid, and received an application fee to an institution of their choice. After completing the program, researchers evaluated the effect of this training on rates of post-secondary application and enrollment. This funding will support following these students for another two years to evaluate the effectiveness of the Life after High School program in encouraging grade twelve students to enroll in post-secondary education.
