Researchers predict more than two-thirds of future jobs will require at least some level of postsecondary education. Yet, only 50 percent of current high school students feel their school has helped them to develop the skills and knowledge needed for success in postsecondary education. As a targeted program for Academic Success, Diplomas to Degrees (d2D) helps teen Club members overcome this college readiness gap by preparing them to succeed as they pursue post-secondary credentials for the modern workforce.

d2D is a targeted program in BGCA's education core program area that encourages teens to make connections between their interests and future career paths, plan and prepare to enter postsecondary education, and develop the social-emotional skills and attributes to be successful in their educational endeavors.
