It is made possible with financial assistance via a grant from the Michigan Community College Association.

Bridges to College - Husky Hype-Up is focused on student learning through supporting reading, writing and math skills; a hybrid model of instruction that includes online and in-person learning, and activities to get students ready to become an MCCC Husky and help them build a sense of belonging at Monroe County Community College.
"In addition to improving their academic skills in core areas, students will work with our college educational advocates to prepare for their higher education experience in the fall," Navock said. "They’ll meet with advisors, learn about financial aid opportunities and gain career readiness skills."
MCCC will provide all of the learning materials and supplies, a free laptop and a $500 stipend based on attendance and participation, breakfast and lunch each day, student engagement activities, resource information, college navigation, access to the college’s Heck’s Market food pantry and a $25 Lyft card.
