My cohort collaborated with another cohort of OneGoal students (led by PD Maureen Santiago) in the school to create informative presentations on 15 different colleges throughout Massachusetts. These 50 Fellows basically played the role of admissions officers and shared the types of considerations students should be cognizant of as they’re making their college decisions.
For me & Maureen, this event was a great way to showcase all the valuable learning that is happening in our OneGoal classrooms, and the progress Fellows are making on their college journeys.
Our Fellows learned so much about the universities in preparation for this event. But in my opinion the biggest impact was with our Fellows’ peers, and the lack of awareness and urgency they felt about college and the process before this event.
