Growing Grads: FAFSA Workshops

The cost of attending a 4-year college, or technical education school is usually quite expensive, and therefore many people need to take out a loan to finance their education. While the FAFSA is necessary to complete, it can often be confusing. For this reason, Brighton Youth Services hosts FAFSA workshop nights where students and their families can receive free help from trained FAFSA professionals. During these workshops FAFA professionals are available to answer your questions and provide one on one assistance. Please continue to check here for dates of the 2021-2022 FAFSA workshops.
