McCombs FIGs Fall 2015

I volunteered for the ENCORE Program hosted at Webb Early College Prep Academy. I am part of the UT Academic Counselors Association and we provided volunteer hours to serve food to the families who who were attended the conference that day.
This is my third time doing the event and is one of my favorite volunteer opportunities. Because I work at a university, the mission of ENCORE and the mission of my organization are similar and I love knowing that we are actively providing services in middle school that allow students to know that higher education can be obtained.

I volunteered for ENCORE ( "Engaging Our Community for College Readiness") Student & Family Conference at Webb Early College Prep Academy as part of the Academic Counselors Association. Webb is an under-resourced school that has 90% + students whose parents did not go to college. The purpose of this program, and the mission of the school as a whole, is to make sure college is part of their typical vocabulary and that they know that college can be a goal if they decide that's the direction they wan to go.
Our primary goal was to serve a Thanksgiving lunch as part of their lunch entertainment. We fed more than 400 people and even though the food wasn't the purpose of the program, we all knew that we were a part of making this day a success for the attendees and the school.
