Increasing Florida’s talent pipeline is vital for continued growth and economic prosperity, and the state aims to increase the percentage of working-age Floridians with degrees and workforce-relevant credentials to 60% by 2030.

To meet our upcoming workforce needs, Florida must be College Ready.

“If it wasn’t for my counselor believing in me and encouraging me, I don’t believe I’d be going to college.”

– Citrus County student, Spring 2020

College Ready Florida is a series of 4 statewide initiatives aimed at supporting a college-going culture by helping students plan for their futures, navigate the college-going process, and access and complete a postsecondary education. These initiatives focus on students at all grade levels and place special emphasis on low-income and first-generation college students.





How Can I Participate in College Ready Florida?

  • Sign up to be a host site. Public high schools and community organizations like Local College Access Networks (LCANs), Boys and Girls clubs, YMCAs, and libraries can all host College Ready Florida events.
  • Serve on a planning committee. Many host site coordinators form planning committees comprised of school faculty, community members, parents, and students.
  • Volunteer. Volunteers can help students with applications, provide technical support, distribute stickers, and more.
  • Provide donations. Businesses and community members can support College Ready Florida by providing snacks and refreshments for volunteers and students, or by donating raffle prizes.
  • Spread the word! Share your stories on social media using the hashtags #PlanItFL, #ApplyYourselfFL, #FAFSAFL, and #DecisionDayFL.

Why Should Host Sites Sign Up?

  • Get free stuff! FCAN provides stickers and other promotional materials to schools that register their Apply Yourself Florida events.
  • Get connected. When host sites register, FCAN connects them with college access advocates and experts in their communities who can support their events.
  • Get recognized. FCAN loves to celebrate the successes of our host sites. We highlight awesome College Ready Florida events on social media, on our blog, and in our newsletter.
