Celebrating National Make A Difference Day By Partnering with Michigan Colleges

 In News

For National Make A Difference Day on October 26, 2019, The Park West Foundation partnered with Michigan colleges over several days to host high school seniors who are former or current foster care students on their campuses to share their stories, resources, and inspire them to have a solid plan after graduation. The open houses included lunch, music, a panel discussion, FAFSA/TIP/FFS and scholarship mentorship, and campus tours!

The Park West Foundation wants to encourage, inspire, make a difference, and help students believe that college is possible! The message is simple, “Dream Big: College is Possible!” We are keeping it real and honest with students, because we know coming to college is not easy and requires a lot of work. But, it is worth it!

  • Washtenaw Community College
  • University of Michigan-Flint
  • Michigan State University
  • Eastern Michigan University
  • University of Michigan
  • Grand Valley State University
  • Ferris State University
  • Western Michigan University
