Good Afternoon –
I wanted to make you aware of a tremendous partnership between DHS and St. John’s University. The Advantage Academy was established in 2009 to provide formerly homeless or at-risk individuals the opportunity to attain housing stability through education and employment. Through the Academy, eligible students have the opportunity to obtain an Associate Degree in Business Administration from the College of Professional Studies at no cost. Guided by the program themes of academic, professional and personal development, the program not only offers a two-year degree, but provides students with the resources to support career readiness and personal growth.
I’m attaching the application if you would like to recruit your clients for the program. Applicants must submit the Advantage Academy application, application for admission (St. John’s University Application), and complete their FAFSA on or before May 30, 2014.
Applications can be mailed, faxed or emailed to application:
