“A Pre-College Experience”

Team GR8 focused their group efforts on emphasizing the importance of higher education to lesser-advantaged students. We know that through positive experiences and real life interaction, community members have a chance to influence the future decisions of today’s youth. Team GR8 offered a select group of targeted students – those who have the potential to continue their education beyond high school, but who may not have been exposed to a college environment – an opportunity to visit a college campus and hear first-hand from college representatives.

The primary objective of this project was to reach students early enough where they can set meaningful goals and realize that a college education is not unattainable.
