The Education Equalizer College Preparedness 101 Workshop

Here’s the problem: Underserved, particularly Black, Hispanic, and poor, as well as first-generation middle-high school students need increased access to the networks, knowledge, and resources required for success in college and life.

Here’s our solution: The Education Equalizer College Preparedness Workshop helps students: 1) explore college with peers, 2) prepare for the academic rigors of college, 3) create competitive college applications, 4) complete the FAFSA, 5) obtain scholarship awards, 6) write personal statements, and 7) begin to earn community service hours and leadership skills which will enable them to enter the workforce. Let us work together to host an event for your students.
