Starfish Initiative is hosting a College Fair for scholars participating in the program. Starfish matches 21-Century Scholars that are academically promising with 1 on1 college-educated mentors throughout high school. Many of the scholars are first-generation bound college students. Each scholar is matched with a mentor that helps them navigate the road map to college or a career. The mentor serves as an advocate, coach, encourager, and champion to strive towards their academic and vocational pursuits.
The College Fair is set for Saturday, October 30, and will be the first one we have had in over two years. The event will host over 200 Sophmore – Seniors in high school to meet with post-secondary Indiana academic institutions. The College Fair is a closed event and for Starfish Intitative Scholars only and their mentors.
Starfish Intitative is thrilled to announce that Barnes and Thornburg have agreed to be the lead sponsor for this event. We are still looking for additional corporate sponsors to support our scholars. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Attention College Fair 2021.
