Early College Awareness


Welcome to Early College Awareness (ECA)! We believe in the power of education to transform lives. That's why we're thrilled to provide Clubs, SIGs, and individual classes with an opportunity to make a meaningful impact in their communities through our ECA program.

Education is at the heart of what we do, and according to the Harvard Impact Study, it's also the #1 focus for alumni volunteer efforts. With ECA, you have the chance to be a part of something truly special – helping students and parents understand that a college education is within reach, regardless of their background or circumstances.


Our program isn't about recruiting for Harvard. Instead, it's about breaking down barriers and opening doors for students who may not see college as an option. Whether you're engaging with middle and high school students, or providing support to families navigating the college process for the first time, your involvement with ECA is invaluable.


The beauty of ECA lies in its flexibility. From school assemblies to classroom speaker programs, and even half and full-day events with local community partners, there are countless ways to get involved. Best of all, you don't need a hefty budget – ECA programs can be tailored to fit any setting or situation.


Ready to learn more? Dive into our resources, including presentations from past webinars and our comprehensive ECA toolkit. These materials are designed to equip you with everything you need to launch your own ECA program and make a difference in your community.
