Bro/Sis Hosts Its Annual College & Career Fair
Our young people holding up college acceptances

In January, nearly 70 members attended Bro/Sis' College Advisory Program (CAP) College & Career Fair. Informational packets on the college prep process and financial aid were given to participants as they were welcomed. Broken into small groups, attendees participated in a series of activities, which included a panel discussion led by guests who discussed opportunities in line with their respective career paths.  Bro/Sis alumni/ae assisted with tabling and shared information about their schools as well as their college experience. Attendees competed for prizes by participating in a scavenger hunt which required them 
to gather information from staff members such as which college they attended, their major, their favorite and most challenging experiences in college, and their current occupation. The activity was designed to impress upon our young people that higher education is an organization wide goal.  
"At first, I only wanted to go to an out of state school, but the college fair exposed me to in state colleges that are just as good.  Right now, I want to attend either St. John's University  or Rutgers University and study forensic science.  My favorite part was the panel discussion where they talked about with hard work and belief in yourself, you can achieve success."

"One thing that stood out to me at the college fair was the difference between a  college and a university.  I'm getting a head start on my college application process.  I've already completed my college essay  and this summer I'm going to the college boot camp."  
- Aminata Seck, 16
