High Rocks Educational Corporation and the Hub will host a free information session from 5-7 PM on Nov. 16 at the Hub located in Building C of the Lee Street Complex (the old Lewisburg Elementary School). The coaching session is for high school seniors ready to create a pathway to success as they look at colleges this fall. It will also explain the benefits of joining AmeriCorps.
Presenters include representatives of college-level financial aid, AmeriCorps staff, a college professor to discuss the importance of math curricula, and others to assist in transitioning from high school into a higher education program.
This workshop is free thanks to the collaborative partnership between the AmeriCorps program and the West Virginia Jobs Network, all working under High Rocks, a youth empowerment program based in Pocahontas, Greenbrier, and Webster counties.
