Students at Work
Workshops convey college knowledge to First Generation college students

Many nonprofits have been impacted by COVID, requiring that fundraising be done on line. A year ago we began planning our 10th Anniversary Gala scheduled for October 22, 2020 to raise funds for next year's programs. Out of social solidarity and for mutual safety, we are moving to a virtual event. A videographer will help us film 5 segments at 4 minutes each and edit the vignettes filmed locally to help create our virtual platform. We are sharing the story of what it is like to be a First Generation student or a student with a disability who needs a coach to find their future, to become the professional they dream of through advanced education. Our organization is about turning dreams into degrees. Students in 8th grade join at our in- school program for the first hand up to college and career. In high school students are coached through college applications and financial aid for the chance to ignite their journey forward with scholarships. Our community college programming lifts up those students who are homeless and hungry by providing food and hygiene items so they can better complete their education. Our vignettes will showcase those students and community businesses who sponsor our work. Ultimately the work will become part of our YouTube page for College Bound AZ
