ROSWELL, Ga., Nov. 30, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Georgia-based author and educational consultant, Mychal Wynn, is working to expand college access for lower income and first generation students. Wynn notes, "As students nationally apply to college over the coming months, students who will be the first in their family to attend college and those from low-income families, will be particularly at risk of making the wrong college choice."
Wynn adds, "Even those students who have successfully navigated their way into their final year of high school, studies show that such students will experience multiple challenges from identifying the right colleges and financial resources, to fully completing and submitting college applications, filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), meeting financial aid deadlines, submitting enrollment deposits, and actually enrolling in college in the fall following high school."
Wynn says that while policymakers are discussing how to respond the plethora of research pertaining to these challenges, he has developed a means of providing immediate support for such students. "I have written a collection of quick guides and over 50 downloadable activities that parents, teachers, mentors, and support organizations can use to provide guidance and assist students in overcoming these challenges. Self-motivated students can use the activities to navigate their way through each part of the college admissions and financial aid processes."
Rev. Don Ezell, parent and Youth Pastor of the Turner Chapel AME Church in Marietta, Georgia notes, "The downloadable activities that Mychal has created represent an easy to use curricula that anyone interested in assisting students in navigating the college admissions and financial aid processes can use. I used the activities in assisting my own children, who are now both enrolled in college, and our church's Education Ministry, where Mr. and Mrs. Wynn serve as the Ministry Leaders, have used the activities to assist students in navigating their way into top colleges and high dollar scholarships like the Gates Millennium Scholars program for several years. The ability to use a $1.95 activity to save hundreds of dollars in fees or to earn thousands of dollars in scholarships is an unimaginable return on investment."
