BENEFITING: Urban Upbound

Shannon Lee Gilstad

THE STORY:

Hi, I'm Shannon Lee Gilstad and I am a Community Engagement Coordinator at Urban Upbound, formerly East River Development Alliance, a non-profit in Western Queens whose focus is helping residents, especially public housing tenants, become economically sufficient through employment assistance, training/educational opportunities, financial empowerment, and access to higher education.

What is College Access?
College Access provides a full array of college counseling and placement services to high school students who live in local public housing communities. Services include a rigorous Kaplan SAT preparation course, college exploration and transition workshops, campus tours throughout the NY tri-state area, intensive 1-on-1 college and financial aid application assistance, and referrals to a host of community partners for further extracurricular and internship opportunities.

With your help, these children can become prepared with the support they need to get accepted, stay engaged, and be the first to graduate college in their respective families.
