The CPV program includes training and curriculum supported by state and federal funding. It is a joint undertaking between MCC and the state's Martin Luther King, Jr.-César Chávez-Rosa Parks (KCP) Initiative as part of its KCP GEAR UP/College Day (GU/CD) Program within the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth.
Across the country, many college students volunteer through their post-secondary institutions to work with K-12 youth, as mentors, tutors, event-specific participants, etc. College Positive Volunteers are those college students and their administrators who are aware of how they impact the college enthusiasm and readiness of the K-12 youth they interact with as they volunteer in local communities.
As a college access program, it reflects efforts to increase the college enrollment of all students, and especially underrepresented students, by providing them with support and information about college preparation, paying for college, career selection, financial resources, etc.
