At Bethany Hill we believe education is the mightiest tool in building self-sufficiency. This year we have taken a special interest in making this clear to our high school aged young adults who are headed towards one of the loftiest educational events of their lives: entering college. This new group, called “College Connection,” takes these students to many different types of colleges: large, small, private, public, urban, suburban, etc. It is our hope that when our high school students apply for college they will be fully ready to choose the college that is right for them, feel confident in funding their education, and understand how they will impact the campus they choose. Also, by taking part in this group together and starting the college planning process together, we hope that our young people will feel supported by their peers and know they have their community’s support as they take on applying to and entering college. So far the group has visited Mass Bay Community College, Framingham State University, Wellesley College, and The College Planning Center in Framingham. During the remainder of the year we will visit colleges in Boston, Clark University in Worcester, and have several meetings to discuss how to build a great resume for applying to colleges. We can’t wait to see the college success of these incredible young residents!
