This Saturday, Bronx Community College will host a career fair coordinated by the Upward Bound and Talent Search Programs for participating students and families in honor of National TRiO Day, which focuses on increased access to higher education for disadvantaged students. The event will run from 10 to 3 p.m. at the school's Gould Memorial Library Auditorium and will consist of a panel of professional speakers who will share their stories about their own career choices and how they got to where they are today.
From a press release: The Upward Bound and Talent Search programs target eligible area high school students from low-income families and/or first-generation college students, whose parents did not earn a four-year degree, the opportunity to participate in academic classes, tutoring, counseling, workshops, college/cultural trip and a myriad of educational services on the Bronx Community College campus. Both programs help students identify their academic strengths and assist them in enrolling and graduating from post-secondary educational programs.
