Join Pasadena City College and Assemblymember Anthony Portantino (44th District) for a meet-and-greet designed to enhance the knowledge, awareness, and understanding of college and higher education during the "Breaking Barriers to Higher Education" town hall meeting on May 22.
California has the largest number of youth in foster care and each year about 1,000 of those young people in Los Angeles County leave the foster care system when they turn 18. For many, life after foster care can be daunting. Navigating the college application and financial aid processes can be even more overwhelming.
The meeting is aimed at current and former foster youth who are interested in learning more about the path to college and will provide information about the various support resources offered by PCC. Attendees will learn about classes, childcare, support groups, and financial aid for children in need.
The event will take place in the Jack Scott Multipurpose Room on May 22, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The PCC Community Education Center is located at 3035 E. Foothill Blvd. in Pasadena. For registration and more information, call (626) 577-9944 or (626) 585-3037.
