Vice-Mayor Robin Arredondo-Savage and a host of partners from the education and nonprofit community designed College Connect to convey “the belief that anyone who wants to can go to college, and to provide the resources and tools.” College Connect takes shape as a free workshop series for students and parents, keyed to well-timed preparatory steps leading to successful college entry. College Connect provides one-on-one guidance and workshops on a variety of topics including:
· Applying to College
· Career Exploration
· Financial Aid Assistance
Inspire and enable students and community members to pursue post-secondary opportunities by providing free access to resources, financial guidance and support.
College Connect Tempe is a community collaboration designed to increase access to post-secondary opportunities for Tempe's youth.
