Assist

In partnership with the California Student Aid Commission, L.A. Cash for College hosts free annual Workshops designed to assist students and families in completing their financial aid applications during the financial aid application season from Jan. 1 to March 2. In addition, the Campaign hosts a “Super Saturday” event where more than 30 workshops are scheduled simultaneously.

During the workshop season, students and their families are invited to attend a free workshop at one of more than 160 community locations across the Los Angeles region where trained volunteers from colleges, universities and businesses provide one-on-one assistance to help them complete the FAFSA, the California Dream Act Application and access financial aid resources including Pell and Cal Grants. Workshops are conducted in collaboration with a wide network of community partners including local schools, college access programs and social service providers.
