    Listen to our segment on All Things Considered from NPR News using the following link!


    Claudio Sanchez, a news correspondent from NPR, spent the better part of a week with us at our 2016 program at Lawrence University. This is what he saw. Tip: Be sure to listen to the audio from the show since it contains the voices of our students and more content than the written article! 

    College Horizons is a program of heart - take a listen to our students share their stories on their fluid identities, preparing for college, being teenagers and strengthening their families, communities and Nations through education. Thank you Claudio Sanchez and NPR for listening. We are thrilled for the coverage as we prepare to launch our CH Annual Fund Campaign in just a few short weeks - stay tuned!

    The staff of College Horizons would like to express our deep appreciation for Ashley Claw, CH '13 at NYU!  As part of a Duke University program for undergraduates called Duke Engage, Ashley Claw elected to volunteer as an intern with College Horizons for two months. Ashley finished her internship with College Horizons on August 3 but her work has made a lasting impact for the year to come! She jumped in with us as we threw a myriad of tasks her way - everything from program curriculum coordination to finances, from cleaning up student files and mail merges to spreadsheet and data entry work.  She also served as a program assistant while participating in Graduate Horizons 2016 at University of Michigan.

    "On top of her dedication to our work, it was wonderful to see Ashley immerse herself in the broader Native communities of the Albuquerque area. We are proud she chose us and couldn't be more pleased with her contribution to our programs," offered Carmen Lopez, Executive Director of College Horizons. A huge thank you to Ashley Claw and the Duke Engage program for making this possible!
