Go College! tour kicks off with film screening

While communities organize to encourage students to apply early for student financial aid, many students continue to struggle to pay for college.

Go College! is kicking off it’s tour next week in Los Angeles, CA, presenting 70 screenings of the award-winning documentary First Generation, a documentary that tells the story of four high school students from diverse backgrounds who set out to break the cycle of poverty by pursuing a college education. Sponsored by Wells Fargo, the screening will feature panel discussions with the filmmakers, workshops on student aid lending programs and education experts.

The documentary, which was filmed over the course of three years, chronicles the struggles first-generation college students face to understand the financial aid and enrollment process with little or no help from family or school counselors.
