The Center for Financial Empowerment (CFE), the nonprofit founded by SCE Credit Union, is launching a free virtual informational series for teens and young adults that will guide and help participants navigate through many of life’s “firsts.” The kickoff live stream event will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 18 and will de-mystify the process of applying for college to help both students and parents feel more confident.
The process of applying for college can be daunting with multiple lists of requirements, things to consider, procedures and deadlines. While this is challenging for any adult to manage, it can be absolutely overwhelming to a 17-18-year-old trying to navigate the complexities.
Panelists include: Eboni Hodge, M.Ed. of Higher Learning, LLC; Rhea Watson, Ph.D of Scholarship Solutions; Diane Angulo of Fulfillment Fund; Charles Mason from Loyola Marymount University; and Maria Alvarez of UNITE L.A.
“Teens today understand they need higher education for the next step in their lives, but the process of getting there can be complicated and at times overwhelming,” said Abby Ulm, director for the Center for Financial Empowerment. “As a community resource, our goal with these virtual series is to provide insider tips, positive solutions and tools for young adults to walk away feeling more confident about their life journey ahead. The series will include a vast array of topics important to inform and steer young adults into a positive direction.”
