I Can Finish College
"Through education individuals should be encouraged to find his or her own voice. Students should come to better understandings of themselves in multiple contexts, allowing them to understand the world better in the way that most plays to their own strengths." -Marcia Y. Cantarella, PhD
Dr. Cantarella has given numerous workshops for students in programs and institutions ranging from Hunter and Bergen County Community College to Futures and Options, A Better Chance, Prep for Prep, SEO, and Eagle Academy to name a few.
The focus is typically for students to understand how to use the college experience to achieve their ultimate goal of professional success. However, themes like leadership, study skills and time management are also often requested. Each is customized for the program and institutional goals as well as the needs of the audience. A focus has been on the most at risk students: first generation, low-income, minority and males. Workshops have also been given for those working with the targeted population of most at risk students and can be customized as appropriate as was done for the Mid Career Fellowship Program through the McGraw Center at Princeton University, CACNY (College Access Consortium of NY) and also through Prep for Prep’s professional development series.
