Through the NYC College Access & Success Mapping Project, GNYC surveyed programs across the city to create an interactive map illustrating the breadth and depth of college access and success work across New York City for local and national stakeholders.
The map images represent the locations where college access and success programs are serving individuals, which can be filtered by various criteria. Use the menu on the left side of the page to apply different filters to the map. The filters will display the number of programs serving a particular borough/neighborhood under that criteria. For example, by selecting the “Justice involved youth” filter under Targeted Populations, the map will show the number of college access and success programs that have stated that they have specific expertise working with justice involved youth and in which borough(s)/neighborhood(s) they typically provide services. More than one filter may be applied at a time. To learn more about a particular map image, focus on a particular borough by hovering over an area of the NYC map until it is highlighting the borough of interest. Click on this borough and the map will zoom in. Hover over the borough, to see the names of the neighborhoods along with the number of programs serving that neighborhood. For more information about the programs, double click on the neighborhood named or select “View Listings” at the top of the menu. This will bring up a page with program information for the programs meeting the filtered criteria and serving the borough selected. Filter criteria can be changed from this page by using the menu on the left. To toggle back to the map, click “View Map” at the top of the menu.

About this Project
In 2015, Graduate NYC launched the NYC College Access & Success Mapping Project with generous support from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, the Booth Ferris Foundation and the New York Community Trust. Through an extensive outreach process, and with the engagement of the college access and success community, this interactive mapping feature was created to communicate to local and national stakeholders the breadth and depth of this work happening in New York City to support students to and through college. As part of the Mapping Project, a total of 164 responding organizations providing 201 college access and success programs were surveyed for information about their services, the individuals they serve, and where they are providing college access and success support in the NYC area. The map images focus on the individual college access and success programs, rather than the organizations. Most (191) programs provide services directly to individuals in need, while a few (10) programs provide services to the sector as a whole, such as technical assistance, professional development for staff and relevant research. Due to the difference in data collected between the two, the map images illustrated on this page only reflect data provided by college access and success programs that serve individuals directly. The Listings Page includes listings for all responding programs. Please note, our map images and data are only representative of the organizations that participated in our data collection activities. Most of the organizations that responded to this survey predominantly serve low-income students, first-generation college-goers, racial and ethnic minorities, and other groups typically underrepresented among college degree holders.
