What is the college transition initiative?

The mission of CPYU’s College Transition Initiative (CTI) is to provide resources for students, parents, church leaders and educators to help students be more spiritually prepared for college. Resources include seminars, books, articles, expert interviews, conferences and events, and a regularly updated blog. The resources invite students, parents and youth workers to have more meaningful conversations about life after high school.

A note from CTI Director, Derek Melleby

“My passion is to see young people make the most of college. College is a gift and a transformational opportunity. My hope is that through this ministry and website, students and parents are better equipped to meet the challenges of today’s college life.”
