Throughout the year, NAYA Family Center’s College and Career Readiness program conducts several campus visits. Invited youth are those that have been engaged in the College and Career Center through attending College Nights or participating in optional courses offered by the College and Career Coordinator. During 2012-2013, we visited Southern Oregon University, Portland State University, Oregon State University, Western Oregon University, and Eastern Oregon University. When visiting campuses students receive a personalized college tour, focusing on critical student support services and meeting Native American faculty, staff, and students when possible.
Summer visits include a one day workshop at Oregon Health and Sciences University and possibly additional campuses for those enrolled in the Summer College and Career Preparation course.
