#WeBelongInCollege

Many young adults who dream of going to college never get there, or if they do, they never finish. Let's change this! Make an impact by sharing your stories about belonging in college!

Using the documentary Personal Statement and curriculum developed with it, we're hosting workshops for high school students in June and July.

In these workshops, you will create and share your own #WeBelongInCollege video stories, and you can submit them for a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship for college.
