Thrive at the Fair is a pioneering initiative designed to bridge the information gap between higher education institutions and young students in the Metro Atlanta area. Recognizing the importance of early exposure to college and career possibilities, this initiative brings comprehensive college fairs to counties across the region, targeting middle and high school students.
These fairs are more than just informational booths; they are dynamic, interactive events where students can engage directly with representatives from various colleges and universities. The fairs will include workshops on college preparation, financial aid, scholarship opportunities, and career planning. These sessions are aimed at empowering students with the knowledge and resources to make informed decisions about their educational futures.
In addition to college and university booths, the fairs will feature motivational speakers, alumni panels, and hands-on activities related to different fields of study. This approach ensures that students not only gather information but also experience the excitement and possibilities that higher education offers.
The initiative also includes a digital platform, providing ongoing access to resources, webinars, and guidance for students, parents, and educators. This ensures that the benefits of the fairs extend beyond the events themselves, supporting students throughout their educational journey.
