Regardless of socio-economic background, parents and caregivers remain the single greatest influence in a young person’s life. Support and encouragement from parents or caregivers during the college selection process, and during college years, is imperative for most students to succeed. We conduct annual workshops for college knowledge, college selection and financial aid planning for families. Each student and their family also meets for a one-on-one conference with PWFC twice annually during high school. This partnership between PWFC and parents will have a significant impact on students’ college degree attainment.
