Announcing Spring 2024 College Bound volunteer training and FAFSA completion events

February 22, 2024

United Way of Greater Atlanta’s College Bound program harnesses the power of collective impact to remove barriers to college access. In partnership with the Scholarship Academy and Learn4Life, College Bound recruits volunteers, trains them in the process to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and invites them to help families from metro area schools navigate the application to secure financial aid for college.

You can help youth go to college

Why become a College Bound volunteer?

  • A college degree or credential helps establish a skilled and educated workforce and a thriving economy
  • By 2025, 6 of 10 jobs will require education beyond high school
  • Each college graduate adds $2M to Georgia’s GDP

When you volunteer for College Bound, not only are you helping students pay for college and secure debt-free degrees, but you are uplifting your community.
