Get Involved

With the support of volunteers like you, L.A. Cash for College is able to annually serve over 10,000 local area students through our College and Career Convention and Financial Aid Completion Workshops. 

 

College and Career Convention

Held in the Fall, this event brings together a community of volunteers to provide students with information on college life, financial aid resources, and career pathways.  We appreciate the many individuals that volunteer as financial aid presenters, college life experts, personal statement reviewers, career panelists, and resource fair exhibitors.  Moreover, this large-scale event would not be possible without our volunteers and partners who assist behind the scenes to ensure that all runs smoothly.

Financial Aid Completion Workshops

 

From October through March of each year, L.A. Cash for College will coordinate over 100 free Financial Aid Completion Workshops at school sites across Los Angeles as part of a statewide campaign to increase awareness of and access to student aid programs. These workshops provide assistance to high school seniors and their families as they complete their federal and state financial aid forms. On, Super Saturday we mobilize volunteers across dozens of locations to conduct simultaneous Financial Aid Completion Workshops.
