Volunteer for a Financial Aid Completion Workshop

Between October and June, L.A. Cash for College helps to coordinate FREE financial aid completion workshops throughout the Los Angeles area as part of a statewide campaign to increase awareness of and access to student financial aid programs. These workshops help students navigate financial aid application forms so that they can obtain the financial support needed to pursue their college dreams. Volunteers are needed to support workshop organizers and attendees (student applicants and their guardians). Volunteer roles vary from general volunteers to forms assistance to presenters.
