College Signing Day

My Students

Over the past year I have had the pleasure of representing National Advising Corps and working with a group of very bright, very motivated young people at a High School in Compton, CA as a College Adviser. We have watched our students go above and beyond, taking all the necessary steps in order to turn their dreams into reality and it has been an honor to be apart of their lives as they grow into young adults and make decisions for their futures. Nearly 100% of our students qualify for free lunch and through helping with FAFSA and Dream Act applications I’ve learned that many of their families receive public assistance. Many of our students are children of migrants and many are DREAMERS. What makes me most proud of my kids is the love they have for their hometown. Nearly all of them have expressed a desire to contribute to Compton in a positive way and see it as their responsibility to go to college and learn all they can so they can make a difference. These students know the value of hard work and their commitment to their communities and families is true example of the capacities of spirit.

My Project

College Signing Day is our chance to celebrate all the hard work our students have put in to gain admittance to make plans for after high school and to remind them that The World Is Theirs! Our shopping cart consists of travel and planet earth themed decorations and other party supplies. We have blank planet earth notecards so that students will have the opportunity to thank their teachers and friends for being apart of their support system. We also hope to give each student a planet earth stress ball as a party favor and are hoping to purchase 240 of those. For some students this will be their only time to celebrate themselves and their accomplishments so we want to make this a memorable experience for all of our graduates!
