Dear WASFAA Member:
College Goal Wisconsin is just around the corner and the planning committee hopes you will consider volunteering at one or more of the upcoming events.
College Goal Wisconsin (CGW) events will be held at 35 locations this upcoming November and January. Volunteers are needed to provide one-on-one assistance to college-bound students and their families as they complete the FAFSA form. College Goal Wisconsin will take place at throughout the state on Wednesdays-November 2, November 9, January 18, and January 25 beginning at 6 p.m. as well as Saturdays, November 5, November 12, January 21, and 28 beginning at 10 a.m. Approximately 1,300 students are expected to attend CGW events with their family members. For more information about CGW, please visit www.collegegoalwi.org.
In addition to WASFAA members who have expertise in completing the FAFSA, CGWI sites need friendly volunteers to staff registration tables, greet and direct attendees, and assist with the surveys and scholarship drawings.
To become a volunteer you can register at www.collegegoalwi.org/index.php/volunteer/. If you’d like to help on more than one day or at more than one site, please register separately for each event.
There are also other ways that you can help.
1) Spread the word to your prospective students.
2) Include CGWI slides in your upcoming financial aid presentations.
3) Distribute promotional materials and resources. Items are available at http://collegegoalwi.org/printable-materials/.
4) Visit us on Facebook.
5) Forward this message to colleagues and college access friends you think might be interested in helping.
On behalf of the College Goal Wisconsin Committee, thank you for your support!
