There are several ways to get your success news out into the world. If you’re a first-generation college student, you should know that the College Access Program is an important step towards getting a college degree. Jared Thompson, a Penn graduate and first-generation college student, is a good example of a program coordinator. For the ninth grade experience, freshmen interested in the College Access Program are invited to sign up for PEF’s Ninth Grade Experience. An internship and two-semester seminar at Penn’s Graduate School of Education also help students gain experience in the field.
