College Goal Sunday is a national effort that helps families apply for financial aid for college.  It typically draws a significant number of first-generation high school students and their parents/caregivers who may need help in the actual application process.  

An official poster for the event and the organization can be found here.

There, you can find more details about the history and goals of the organization. You can sign up to volunteer here.

The kick-off speaker will be Ms. Betty Burney, a local community and education leader, and the event will be held on Feb. 21. The Department of Leadership at UNF is trying to reach as much of an audience, and we thought this opportunity may be right up your alley.
