Nevermind getting into college — sometimes filling out the paperwork requires the mind and attention span of a prodigy. If your college-bound student is looking for financial assistance for college, the Metropolitan YMCA has your back — The Y is sponsoring a free Financial Aid workshop for all high school seniors. "College Goal Sunday" will be held at the El Centro College West Campus, 3330 N. Hampton Road Sunday, Feb 21 from 2 p.m.-4 p.m. and will give college bound kids an opportunity to properly fill out the necessary paperwork (the FAFSA) to apply for financial aid. Attendees should bring along 2009 tax info (W2s, tax return) for themselves and their parents in order to get the most out of the seminar. They will also get a chance at $250 toward text books. Thanks to White Rock YMCA’s Youth Development Director Carol Whitsitt for sending us this valuable info!
