Seniors Attend College Summit Workshops at Yale University, July 17-20

College Summit, a nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of youth by connecting them to college, hosted around 55 New Haven students at Yale where the students learned about applying and attending college.  They attended workshops and stayed on Yale's campus from Thursday until Sunday.  The students learned how to (1) apply for financial aid, (2) create a personal statement, (3) fill out the Common Application, (4) enhance leadership skills, and (5) create a college list.  Once the school year begins, these students will coach their peers on what they learned at these workshops.
