  • This is the overview for the training for today. The training is broken up into three parts, first we will go over what is CPV and what is college access in general. Then we will go into actually being a college positive volunteer, and have two activities that will hopefully prepare you for talking to youth about college Lastly, we will explore the funding options available
  • These are the goals for the CPV training . We are hoping to achieve these four goals throughout the training
  • There are many barriers youth face when it comes to navigating the college process, and it is helpful to make mentors aware of these barriers so they can be addressed during their match meeting. The culture one grows up in has a major effect on their futures. Youth may grow up thinking college is not attainable. They may be first in their families where no one has gone to college, or it is expected a youth stays in the family business, and youth may be up against following their dreams of going to college or following the norms of their family. Being academically prepared for college is also something very important that oftentimes holds youth back from being successful in college. Encouraging the youth to attend school, to push themselves academically, have good study habits (no matter what age), actually put effort into the ACT (which is now mandatory in high schools), to take the tough classes to help prepare them, including AP (which will give them college credits). This will all help them to be successful in college. Paying for college is often the most talked about barrier when it comes to attending college. There are options available; youth just need to know what they are. As a college positive mentor, being there to provide payment options and resources can really encourage the mentee and their parent (s)/guardian(s) that college can be paid for.
  • The Toolkit is a resource provided to CPVs to aid them when they are encouraging youth to attend post-secondary institutions after high school.
  • MESP – can be started at anytime in a person’s life Payroll deduction Used at any institution in and out of state Can be used on books, fees, tuition, room and board MET – Purchase by credits Can be used at community colleges and public universities Will be refunded for private schools, disability, death etc. Can be used only on tuition and mandatory fees Can be used in coordination with one another
