FUELing College Dreams

May 13, 2014

If you have a any connection to college you will be interested in this non-profit organization I work with. FUEL or Families United in Educational Leadership guides low-income and first generation college students through the confusing and multifaceted college application process. With most of the staff fluent in Spanish, they are able to conduct Savings Circles (the classes for parents/kids) effortlessly switching between English and Spanish for those who need it.

Not only does it simply explain FAFSA and scholarship options, it offers financial incentives to families who save money for their college bound child.

I love working with the education facilitators who are so talented in making seemingly complicated financial explanations into fun and valuable learning experiences. From Chelsea to Dorchester, these facilitators meet with parents and students to make the college application process easier. What an awesome experience it is to photograph such talent: the driven parents and students in the program, as well as the FUEL staff.
