Fostering Success in Post-Secondary Journeys
Every year, hundreds of thousands of students face unique challenges while weighing their options for life after high school. Low-income students, first-generation students and students of color are disproportionally affected by barriers, challenges and the lack of guidance and support needed to prepare when choosing a post-secondary education and journey.
How can we support students navigating the college admissions and financial aid process, and then foster their success in and after college?
Join us and the Hispanic Development Fund to hear how strategic partnerships, educational programming and philanthropy are all helping to break down college barriers for first-generation and underrepresented students in the Kansas City region.
Date: Thursday, June 24
Time: 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Central
Please RSVP to confirm your attendance. We will email Zoom information at least one hour prior to registered attendees.
