Future-Focused Friday’s

A Peacemaking Project by Ally S.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Future-Focused Friday’s will help low-income and underprepared students to develop college and career readiness skills, engage in self-exploration, and learn how to “adult” in academic environments.

Hi Ally,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian

Hey Ally -- this sounds like an awesome project! College persistence among low-income and first-generation students is such an important issue. Is this something you or others on your team have experienced personally? What motivated you to get started!

Your work sounds like a great way of addressing the problem -- I'd love to learn more about it! What does a 'Future-Focused Friday' look like -- what are the goals, and what do students do?

Most importantly -- how can we help?

Thanks for sharing your project, Ally! Could you tell us a bit more about what you have done so far and the main areas where you need help?
