Members of the Financial Aid and College Education Specialists (FACES) held a financial aid workshop this past week as part of the Edcouch-Elsa ISD Parent Conference.
The FACES seminar allowed the group to meet with youth and their families to offer assistance and guidance on becoming prepared for the college application process, applying to college, and finding financial aid. Parents who attended were able to ask questions of the group, and explored topics ranging from “what age should my child begin preparing for college” to “how do I motivate my child to apply to college?”
FACES is a Llano Grande student-led initiative funded by the State Farm Insurance Company and the State Farm Youth Advisory Board, which promotes youth leadership through service learning. The goal of FACES is to provide local families with access to expert answers and assistance on the college and financial aid application process.
