Cash for College Workshops
  • Education
  • Financial Assistance

JFCS’ Financial Aid Center and YouthFirst are joining forces to help high school students and their parents start thinking about financing college in this simultaneous two-track workshop!

TEEN TRACK

A diverse panel of Bay Area college students discuss how they chose their school and how they are paying for college. A Q/A period will follow to answer teens’ specific questions about their college choice such as location, course study, state versus private, financing, work-study, and more.

PARENT TRACK

Before your college-bound teen applies to schools the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form needs to be accurately submitted. Parents with 9th-12th grade students will learn important financial steps to follow now before their child’s FAFSA must be completed.

WHAT YOU WILL GET:

  • Expert tips and tools to help complete your FAFSA form like a pro
  • Criteria that qualify families for federal grants and loans
  • What to do when FAFSA information is incorrect or needs updating
  • What to be aware of when completing the 2018 federal taxes and how it will affect your 2019-20 FAFSA form
