Get Ready helps families plan for college

One of the biggest challenges students of low-income families face is navigating the intricacies of paying for college. Many are also first-generation college-goers and miss out on the direction and guidance that can be provided by family members who have experienced it first-hand.

This Thursday, Jan. 19th, parents and students at Andersen United in Minneapolis will have the chance to learn much of what they need to know about how to pay for college.

In partnership with the Community Education department, OHE Get Ready staff will set up seven stations families and students can visit to learn about different ways to pay for college, as well as financial basics such as planning and early saving. The Open House will run from 5:30-7:30.

Get Ready is providing information such as this in 10 Twin Cities schools and at qualifying schools across the state. Great work!
