Mark your calendars! It’s Family Night at The 13th Annual Cash for College: College and Career Convention on November 5 & 6 from 5:30 – 9 pm at the LA Convention Center. The event is free but parking is $15 (see the flyer below for free bus transportation to the event).
There will be information and resource material for all grade levels such as:
- College recruiters and career specialists available to answer questions and explain what classes are necessary to put your child on the pathway to their dream college and career
- Small group discussions on a variety of important topics like college savings plans, A-G college entry requirements, preparing a personal statement, scholarships, AB540 resources and much more
- Financial planning resources and opportunities including the Middle Class Scholarship
Students in grades 6 through 12 who make the “Early Commitment to College Pledge” participate in a drawing for one of ten $1,000 scholarships awarded at the end of the Family Night evening. Students pledge an early commitment to college by taking appropriate college preparatory courses, complete the FAFSA form in their senior year of high school and enter college in the fall after their high school graduation.
