“Real Talk” with Recent College Freshman
As a part of New Dawn’s pre-college preparation, the “Real Talk” program was been created by NDVC Intern, Avane Ervin and is in partnership with the Friendship Missionary Baptist Church Scholarship Committee. The program was created to allow middle school, high school, and graduating high school seniors a chance to hear from college students who have just completed their first year of college.
The college students will present panel-style and provide their first-hand year-one college experience and answer questions that middle school and high school may have as they prepare to either begin college in the fall, simply trying to find out more about the college experience, or trying to determine which path they’d like to take following high school.
Students in attendance will be paired with a “Peer Mentor”, who will be one of the presenting panelist. This Peer Mentor will keep in contact with his/her Mentee and be available to answer questions in regard to college.
Graduating High School Seniors in attendance will be invited to come back and be a panelist participant the following year with a mission of help youth and young adults invest in each other.
