Established in 2008 as KnowHow2GO, the BWCAN is St. Clair County's Local College Access Network. Comprised of community leaders, including the Community Foundation of St. Clair County, we are committed to building a college-going culture and dramatically increasing college readiness, participation, and completion rates within our community. Collectively, we have helped over 30,000 local students find their path to post-secondary education, and increased the number of students attending college after high school.
