Mission: In fun and unique ways, connect low-income children with the college experience,
inspire them to think about college and more importantly let them know that they
too can attend college.
As a College Champion volunteer, we would like for you to participate in ONE or More
of the following:
· My College Share– College Students and Alumnae recording short Live Stream videos
and/or YouTube videos discussing current and past college experiences relating to
college challenges, bad days at college, good days at college, exam prep, fun times,
overcoming college challenges, roommate challenges with a positive or comical theme
(no mean spirited commentary), etc.
You may live stream as often as you like or record as many videos as you like
or just one or two.
For current college students it could be a daily or weekly journal of sorts.
As an Alumnae, you can tell how your college degree and college challenges assisted
in getting to where you are today or whatever you choose to speak on as it relates
to your college experience.
Make it fun, unique and creative as you like or it can just simply be straight
Links to your Live Stream and YouTube videos will be available for teachers
who teach in low-income communities to share with their students. Kids will get
to know you, if you record enough segments/videos, and will be excited about seeing
updates from you.
The video links will be posted on our website and social media platforms for
teachers to access at any time. The teachers will be asked to provide comments and
feedback from the students and the feedback and comments will be shared with you.
