The College Funding Project
You can help high school students and their families achieve the dream of a college education as part of our College Funding Project! Volunteers work with our partner high schools as part of a statewide priority to increase college enrollment for high school seniors. You will be trained to provide assistance to students and their families that will enable them to enroll in college. This includes:
Providing hands-on support to students and families to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) during workshops at public high schools throughout the state. A $tand By Me College Funding Project team member is at each event to provide assistance to families and to answer any questions that the volunteers may have.
Attending the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) workshops to provide a variety of services including, welcoming the families, matching families with volunteers, handing out material, collecting attendance sheets, and taking pictures, etc.
College Enrollment Services
Guiding seniors who are headed to college to ensure that they meet deadlines and assignments related to college enrollment.
Participating in community events throughout the state where we provide information about our free services including, one-on-one financial coaching and the College Funding Project.
Assisting Spanish-speaking families with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at workshops by providing interpretation services.
Taking pictures at our public events that are used in our communications to the public including E-newsletters, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
