I'm Going to College
We work with 4th graders (and their teachers) from E.R. Taylor Elementary school (free-lunch/low-income kids/family) incorporating college information into their curriculum, this includes what college is, how to choose a college, how to pay for college, how to apply, etc. Their work culminates in a day at UCSF. The kids are admitted, they go to OAR to register, Financial Aid gives them a scholarship that they cash-in for a backpacks and that are filled with supplies. From there they attend classes that are taught by UCSF students. The classes are VERY hands on to keep their interest. It's all about planting the seed really early!
