Personalized and Accessible College Counseling for First-Generation Students


by : 
Angelina R., Danny C., and Lise D.


Despite efforts to make the path to college more equitable, many disparities within this system persist. Unlike students who are not first-generation, students with parents/guardians who are unfamiliar with the college process must navigate outside resources that will often not cater to their specific needs. Consequently, the college application process becomes disproportionately burdensome and challenging for many first-generation students. This project will aim to create a long-standing organization that will help first-generation college students apply to college through free mentorship.
