An event on Wednesday afternoon at Mattapan's Mildred Avenue Community Center will help prospective college students connect with financial aid opportunities. The event, sponsored by the Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (MASFAA), will take place from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Organizers say the main goal is to make students aware of the importance of postsecondary education and the financial aid resources that are available to assist them.
Carnival activities include career activity centers, a motivational speaker, and games, all of them related to the importance of education. Each student will receive a backpack filled with educational resources donated by member schools. This is a free event that is offered through MASFAA’s Early Awareness and Outreach Committee.
