Earn to Learn is aligning its work with the Arizona College Access Network, Northern Arizona College Resource Center and the Metropolitan Education Commission to reach students in 18 Arizona school districts, helping them plan for their post-secondary futures. AzCAN is leading these efforts as part of College Knowing & Going, an initiative sponsored by Helios Education Foundation.
College Knowing & Going is the evolution of Helios ACT initiative in which all juniors in select Arizona school districts took the ACT test during the school day.

Earn to Learn staff are coordinating schedules and activities with the College Knowing & Going team, school counselors and other leaders in the 83 participating schools to provide accurate information and guidance in financial planning, a key component to college access.
