Not only can applying and getting to college be a daunting endeavor, but also navigating the higher education system, once you are there, can be an even more overwhelming and mystifying experience, especially for young people whose families never attended college. Programs that mentor students to and through college can make a big impact. From learning about funding opportunities through scholarships and federal funding to forming the networks to build their social capital and navigate those on-campus supports, these can all serve to better the college experience and increase persistence. This webinar will focus on the ways mentoring programs and mentors can support youth as they transition to and through college. Register Here
