PASE’s 2014 College Forum and Fair

June 9, 2014

PASE invites university and college admissions staff to meet New York area community-based organizations, which have college prep programs, at their 2014 College Forum and Fair. PASE accomplishes its mission by building the capacity of individual afterschool staff, youth-serving organizations, and the field as a whole, all with the goal of increasing the availability of quality services to youth in out of school time.

For the youth served by PASE, knowledge of college often comes from the staff of community-based organizations, who can be a critical ally in your institution’s efforts to identify and recruit talented low-income, traditionally underrepresented minorities, and/or first generation students.

Afterschool professionals often provide vital college prep services, relieving the workload of over-burdened guidance counselors, and serve as a liaison to parents, many of whom are unfamiliar with the college preparation and application process. Educating this staff about your institution’s offerings allows you to better advocate for the appropriate students to apply to your school.

As a participant in the fair, you will be assigned a table to showcase your college, distribute materials, and hold discussions with attendees. The event will also include panel presentations from higher education institution representatives and community-based organization representatives on key aspects of the admissions, matriculation, and college persistence, followed by the fair.
