Host Your Own Financial Aid Completion Workshop

L.A. Cash for College partners with schools and organizations to host Financial Aid Completion Workshops throughout the financial aid application season. To host a workshop, sites must provide internet connected devices (i.e., computer lab, classroom, community center, etc.) where students can start and/or complete their financial aid applications. Sites must be able to provide 1:1 assistance (volunteers) with the application process during these workshops. L.A. CFC can support connecting potential workshop hosts with volunteers from the region.
