Millennium Fellowship Project: Path to Education

Path to Education is a project that will organize various workshops to connect high school students with select alumni to explore sustainable and affordable education options and discuss internships and other educational opportunities around New York City. The goal of this project is to increase access to higher education and opportunities for lower income and immigrant communities.

This project will last from August 2022 until December 2022 and will be conducted via Zoom sessions to maximize the reach of students and ensure participation. I will be conducting research into education opportunities, programs, and internships to ensure the high school students are gaining valuable information from these workshop sessions. Additionally, alumni from various schools in New York City will attend as guest speakers to talk about their experiences and the education and career paths they selected. The workshops will be led by myself and a guest alumni followed by Q&A sessions and open discussions. To kickstart these sessions, I will reach out to the selected high schools in the New York area to get in touch with guidance counselors and provide materials about this project, so they can connect interested students to my workshops. The goal of this project is to reach 80-120 students.

During the duration of this project, there will be ten, two-hour long workshop sessions conducted on a biweekly basis. In between the sessions, there will be follow-up materials and an email listserve that will keep students in the loop of ongoing opportunities that they can pursue. I will be doing weekly research into these options and send an email every Monday to connect students to various programs, volunteer and internship options, schools and majors.

To assess the impact of my project, I will implement a monitoring and evaluation plan, consisting of two feedback surveys. The first one will be distributed prior to the beginning of the project and one upon conclusion and will measure the impact these workshop sessions had in the decision making and general awareness of educational opportunities for high school students.
