College PrepAs we close up this semester, some of you only have one semester left. This is not only exciting but can be nerve racking when thinking about your next steps. There is can be lots of pressure, confusion, and stress this puts on young adults and it is important to understand your resources to make this process as fun as it should be. You have many resources at your school, including your teachers and guidance counselors. You also have the internet which is the biggest blessing as you can look up anything you need to know. These resources can help with scholarships, grants, good college fits for you, free application week, and tour set up.

Another big part of college is FAFSA which is government funding that helps you pay for your schooling which is the only way many students go, and can can be a huge help. Applying for scholarships and grants also lowers your student debt after graduation and makes your next stage easier! If you have any questions or need help, Union County 4-H would love to part of this journey and you can reach out at 704-283-3735 or 704-283-3740.

Congrats on your next steps and good luck in your future endeavors.
