Center for Optimal College Readiness

The Center for Optimal College Readiness (COCR) connects Manhattan College students with local public and parochial school students in need of tutoring, mentoring, academic counseling and college application support.

Whether you are an undergraduate tutor or a graduate counselor-in-training, this is a great opportunity to work with kids, teachers and counselors, while collaborating with a team and making a difference in the local community.

The Center of Optimal Readiness (COCR) aims to develop and sustain a community of learners who will be successful in post-secondary education.
