Many first- generation are interested in going to college, However they are not well informed about the resources they can use to go to college.Hispanic students do not know how to pay for college, the resources they can use to prepare for college, or what resources there are in college. As a result, some do not attend, leave without a degree, or have low academic performance. To address the lack of knowledge that first-generation, Hispanic high school students may have, I created a three- day presentation about financial aid, the importance of being involved in college, and the benefits of going to college.. The information will be delivered to sophomores and juniors that are part of the migrant program at Salinas High School in Salinas, California.
