Our University Day Helps The Camp Participants To Realize Their Potential
Through Furthering Their Education
For many of our camp participants, the idea of attending college is overwhelming and unattainable. Most will be the first ones in their family to attend college. We want our participants to excel beyond high school, and the University Day begins this process. We use this day to expose the students to the possibilities that come with attending college. We help to inspire the students to reach their full potential and break the poverty cycle in their families. We partner with the students to help navigate some of the barriers associated with college, such as selecting and applying for a college, understanding the admission process, preparing for college admission exams, applying for financial aid, and selecting a career path.
