Overview

Created with the goal of increasing statewide FAFSA-filing rates, TN FAFSA Frenzy is a statewide campaign to encourage and support seniors filing their Free Applications for Federal Student Aid. While elementary and middle school students might not be ready to file a FAFSA, TN FAFSA Frenzy is an excellent time to teach students about the basics of financial aid and financial literacy.

Social Media and Outreach

Reaching out to local media is a wonderful way to increase community awareness of and involvement in college access work. Path to College events are a positive reflection of work happening in your community and inviting the media will shine a spotlight on the work you’re doing through the program.

Volunteer Engagement

Volunteers provide several benefits to your Path to College Events. They can ensure that students sign in to your event, that students and families are directed to the correct locations, and help support students in key tasks like filling out a college application or a FAFSA. In addition to manpower, volunteer involvement provides your students and families with a sense of community support that is a key ingredient to a thriving college-going culture. When students see a volunteer from a local business or higher education institution who is taking time from their day to help with a Path to College event, it sends a message that the community cares about student success.
