Navigating the Ins and Outs of Student Aid

fafsa_workshop

Earlier this month, members and their families in our College Bound program joined the Boys & Girls Club of LA Harbor’s College Bound program for a “FAFSA 101” workshop. FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is a form for families to complete to determine eligibility for financial aid in the form of Pell Grants, Federal Work Study, or Federal student loans. Because the FAFSA is an extensive form, the workshop was planned to help families navigate through the process. A representative from LA Harbor’s College Bound program gave our families a comprehensive and informative presentation on FAFSA basics.
