Allston-Brighton and Cambridge middle and high school students and their families are invited to the Harvard Ed Portal’s College & Career Conversations! Attendees will learn more about the links between college, careers, and income in a safe space and be able to ask questions, share concerns, and learn from one another. College & Career Conversations will feature workshops tailored for middle and high school students in addition to parent/guardian sessions on financial aid and first generation student experiences.
The evening will begin with dinner and a keynote presentation. After, students will attend either a middle or high school workshop while parents/guardians will attend:
"Supporting your Child’s Future Aspirations & Career Pathways"
"Higher Ed 101 (Visiting Campuses & Fit)" or "College for First Generation & Immigrant Students Panel"
Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be available for the keynote & parent workshops. Families can then attend a resource fair featuring local Boston and Cambridge partners.
