Regional Workshops

Our team provides workshops to help college access champions build good systems around College Bound sign-ups for the scholarship and support all students on their way to college.  Workshop topics include building a college-going culture, family engagement in schools, FAFSA and financial aid support, and strategies to support the high school to college transition. Check here for information on our workshops happening within communities around Washington.

“There’s a workshop for that!” How to utilize data and statewide resources to support or implement a postsecondary enrollment action plan in your school.

This workshop will guide participants through the available resources, tools, and data, that will help them to improve the college readiness services they provide. Participants will collaborate with each other to identify strategies for developing teams across content areas and grade levels and by the end of the workshop they will leave with an actionable and measurable post-secondary support plan. This workshop will be facilitated by staff from OSPI, WSAC, and WCAN. An optional in-depth College Bound workshop will be provided immediately after the workshop. Clock hours and light refreshments will be provided.

Now, we are asking YOU to participate in our "Day of Action" by encouraging you to show your support for College Bound students and post on social media.
