Above&Beyond College Readiness Program Starts Saturday, September 27 in Ferguson

The Education Exchange Corps will debut its college readiness program in Ferguson on Saturday, September 27, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The program, called Above&Beyond, will engage kids in the college process, from discovering personal interests to honing communication skills to working on applications and test preparation. We will be at the Ferguson Library for at least two Saturdays in a row.

Volunteers are welcome to come for however long they can. Most importantly, we will need volunteers willing to listen to kids and tell the kids about their own experiences. But if you have special experience in ACT or SAT preparation, scholarship application, academic tutoring, or college admissions, we would love to work with you to design some of our programming. We are also looking for professionals to talk about their careers and the paths they took to get there. We would be happy to partner with you or your business to get kids interested in the many different jobs out there.

To volunteer or donate to the program, please email
