BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – The journey from wanting to attend college to actually attending is sometimes derailed for some high school students. Parents and students worry they can’t complete the college admissions process, can’t pay the bills, or can’t handle the classes; however, a new program has been launched to help families successfully navigate the bridge from high school to college.
Broward County Library’s EMU (Educate, Motivate, YOU) College Club is designed to help high school seniors and their parents build a roadmap to college with support from trained counselors.
Funded in part under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, EMU College Clubs are located at six Broward County Library locations and feature two-hour long biweekly club meetings for students and biweekly counseling sessions for students and/or parents. Club meetings will cover a variety of college related topics including financial aid, online college portals, scholarships, bills, orientation, deadlines and college life.
Monthly special events will feature informational speakers, college fairs, and morale building activities. In addition, club participants will have free access to tutoring, computers, databases, digital downloads, college apps and more.
Regular Club participants will also be eligible to win prizes and incentives. The EMU Co-llege Club will support students and parents from March – August, on evenings, weekends, and all summer, up to the moment students arrive successfully at college.
Club meetings begin the week of March 1st and continue thru August.Weekly meetings will alternate between club activities and counseling sessions.
