Interested in helping your students find the right college fit for them? Having difficulty making relationships with admissions recruiters? Learn more about The TalentED Project, a free digital platform that connects first-generation college-goers with colleges and universities where they’re more likely to succeed. TalentED builds relationships between college admissions and access professionals like you to strengthen the recruitment pipeline of these underrepresented students. You can read about the Talented project here on NCAN’s blog.

Join the network of more than 260 community-based organizations and high schools making connections with 100 colleges and universities nationwide to help thousands of first-generation, lower-income college-goers get recruited by good-fit colleges. Built by UBS, the Tennessee College Access and Success Network and Discovery Education, The TalentED Project will continue to provide free resources to help you help your students. Check out our resource library of materials and you can also share our animated video to start the conversation with your students about the importance of finding a good-fit college and invite them to create a TalentED profile.
