To provide students the opportunity to EXPERIENCE their post secondary options.  


What will be done with my students

Students will visit the college campus of surrounding institutions to explore and experience life as a college student. Specifically, students will attend a college admissions presentation, take a guided campus tour, fellowship with student ambassadors, & enjoy lunch on campus to complete their day.  


Benefits to my students

To provide the opportunity for at risk youth to visit and experience post secondary opportunities. In order for our at risk youth to truly tap into their potential we have to educate, empower, and encourage a college going culture in our school & community  


Budget Narrative

This budget includes travel and food expenses for 40-50 students to visit the University of Central Florida. Each student will be able to travel comfortably and enjoy the on campus college experience. In September, I escorted 65 students to the Polk District College Fair at Florida Southern College (see attached photo). It was an incredible experience for these students and for some of them it was their first time on a college campus. This trip allowed them to meet college recruiters and be educated on the college admissions process. With funding, we will be able to allow students to explore life on a college campus and inspire them to seek post secondary education.
