For Greater Cincinnati teens who think college is financially out of their reach because they’re in over their head when it comes to getting financial aid…local youth serving organizations with a common interest in their success say – RETHINK IT.
They Are Partnering To Remove Barriers For Students In Applying For Aid To College
The organizations are coordinating on College Goal Sunday and College Prep events where knowledgeable, professional volunteers will help students and their families complete AND submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the single most important application required for most scholarships, grants, loans and federal assistance. All of the events are FREE. Pre-registration is encouraged.
I’m helping to spread the word on behalf of the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati, one of the partners. Other partners include: Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, Cincinnati Youth Collaborative, Project Grad, Gear Up, Upward Bound, Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Cincinnati Public Schools, We Need MORE (CPS initiative), University of Cincinnati, College of Mt. St. Joseph, Parents of Public Schools, Hobsons, and the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
