Destination College - the Fulfillment Fund’s signature, day-long college preparation event - provides high school students who may be the first in their family to apply to college with a multi-faceted view of what to expect at college, and how to prepare to get there.
Now in its 20th year, this inspiring, information-packed event includes college preparatory workshops for high school students of all grade levels, inspirational speakers, a campus tour, and an extensive college fair.
Grade-specific workshops cover financial aid, career building, college essay writing, building a high school portfolio, and include panel discussions with college students. Parent workshops (in both English and Spanish) are also provided.
Destination College is a pivotal day for student participants because, for many, it is their first time visiting a higher education institution and, for many, it is the first day they begin to see attending a college or university as within their grasp.
